Bitcoin price was consolidating yesterday. However, the asset has moved north over the last 24 hours. The coin registered 2.2% appreciation.
The crypto has now moved away from the $18,200 support level, although the aforementioned level continues to act as strong support for the Bitcoin price.
The technical outlook also pointed towards the bulls not taking over in the market. Buyers are still not strong in the market despite a slight increase in the Bitcoin price.
Bitcoin, even now, is consolidating between $18,000 and $24,000, respectively.
If the coin maintains the uptrend, then Bitcoin could aim above $19,600, which would bring the bulls back for the relief rally.
The asset also formed a descending wedge pattern, which is a sign of bearish price action. The global cryptocurrency market cap today is $968 billion, with a 1.1% positive change in the last 24 hours.
