Bitcoin remains in a downtrend, which could cause a strong rise

Bitcoin is trading in a bearish zone below $19,500 against the US Dollar. BTC could start a strong recovery wave if there is a move above the $19,500 resistance.

  • Bitcoin failed to gain pace above the $19,500 and $19,600 resistance levels.
  • The price is now trading below the $20,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $19,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could start a fresh decline unless there is a move above the $19,500 resistance zone.

Bitcoin Price Eyes Upside Break

Bitcoin price started another drop below the $19,500 support zone. The price even traded below the $19,000 support zone and spiked below the $18,800 level.

A low was formed near $18,738 and the price is now consolidating losses. There was a minor upward move above the $19,000 resistance zone. The price rose above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the $20,500 high to $18,738 low.

However, the price is now facing strong resistance near the $19,400 zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $19,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The trend line is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $20,500 high to $18,738 low.

The next key resistance is near the $19,800 zone. A clear move above the trend line resistance and then $19,800 could push the price further. In the indicated case, the price could go up towards the $20,500 level. The next major resistance lies near the $21,200 level.

New drop in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $19,500 resistance zone, another drop could start. An immediate support on the downside is near the $19,000 level.

The next major support now lies near the $18,700 level, below which the price could drop considerably. In the indicated case, the price can perhaps drop towards the $17,500 level.
