BThe price of itcoin since the beginning of July has shown immense strength which has driven the price above $22,000 for the second consecutive time in the past fortnight.

Will the price of Bitcoin (BTC) fall back below $20,000?
The crypto star for almost a month has been trading in a parallel channel, holding the lower support trendline. After forming a triple bottom at these support levels, BTC price made another attempt to break above $23,000. However, the bears quickly jumped to $22,800 and dragged the price below $22,000.
Therefore, the price of BTC currently appears to be undergoing another minor correction before moving up the next leg!

The price after a correction can hold above $21,000 or simply fall below these levels to test $20,800 and rebound quickly, reaching the levels above $22,000. However, the 200-day MA levels which are considered one of the strongest support levels can keep BTC price at $20,500.
Therefore, prices are likely to drop to near $21,200 and trigger a strong rebound quickly. In the event the bears muster immense strength, prices may drop to $20,500 to find the base to flip.
