Bitcoin (BTC) price faces rejection at the $45,250 high. Today, August 9, the BTC price is on a pullback to the downside.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Long-Term Prediction: Bullish

On August 6, the bulls broke through resistance at $42,299, but the upside got stuck below the high of $45,000. Now, if the price declines and falls below the $42,000 support, the altcoin is likely to fall into the $31,000-$40,000 range. 

Conversely, if the price declines and finds support above $42,000, Bitcoin will break through the initial resistance at $45,000 and reach the high of $47,000. Subsequently, Bitcoin will rise to the psychological price level of $50,000 if the current momentum continues. In the meantime, Bitcoin is hovering above $43,000 as the bulls defend the current support.
