After hitting as high as 42,600 on 1 August, Bitcoin prices could not proceed further, putting a pin in the balloon of traders holding bullish Bitcoin price prediction bets. The corrective move is said to have liquidated nearly 358K positions at a price of just over $37,500.
Tuesday’s move marks the 4th day of Bitcoin prices ending up in the red, but the price candle has found support at the 37455 price level.
Some analysts think the drop in Bitcoin could be linked to the proposed US infrastructure bill, which seeks to mandate a tax reporting system on crypto transfers. In other words, new infrastructure will be paid for with taxes on crypto transfers if the bill sails through the US Congress.
Bitcoin is trading 1.94% lower as of writing.
Bitcoin Price Prediction Outlook
Bulls need to build momentum on the intraday bounce to push the price above the price wall at 40,750/42,500. If this breakout attempt succeeds, 43569 and 46203 become the immediate upside targets.
If price breaks below 37455, 35297 and 32,500 become the immediate targets to the south. 30208 is also the barrier that stops the BTC/USD pair from dipping towards 27658.
It is also possible for price to become range-bound between the price wall that has 40750 serving as the ceiling and 37455 as the floor. The range can also be extended to include a new floor at 30280 if 35297 and 32500 give way.
