Bitcoin Market Forecast – May-30-2024

Bitcoin’s primary support is the 38.2% Fibonacci level at $67,162. If the price dips below this immediate support, the downtrend initiated from 78.6% Fibonacci will likely target the May 23 low at $66,106, followed by the lower line of the bearish flag at $64,900.

The bearish scenario remains valid if the Bitcoin price is below the critical resistance level at $69,815, backed by the descending trendline.

Bullish scenario

The Bitcoin primary trend is bullish. For the uptrend to resume, the bulls must cross above the 61.8% Fibonacci level at $69,815. If this scenario unfolds, the next bullish target should be at May’s all-time high of $72,092, followed by the April 8 high of $72,879.
