Bitcoin has been following a bearish path since witnessing the all-time high of $69,000. Investors are in extreme fear as Bitcoin once again dropped below $43K and is stuck between below $42K, which is a similar situation as TheCoinRise previously reported.

Bitcoin price prediction on the daily chart

Bitcoin price prediction on the daily chart shows that the world’s biggest cryptocurrency is indeed under pressure from the bears. There is a spike in selling volume as the prices continue below the 50-day and 100-day Moving Averages. 

On the other hand, the prices continue trading in the lower end of the Bollinger Bands, which means that if the selling volume continues to spike, the prices will break out of the lower end of the Bands soon.
