Bitcoin Price Action Analysis

Bitcoin price had some support at $19,750 but failed to break through $20,000 and the SMA100. Subsequently, it dipped and lost the $19,800 level and hit a 24-h low of $19,600. After that, BTC set to recover and is currently trading below $20,000 and the SMA100. On the 1-hour chart, we see a new downtrend forming with resistance at $19,800. On the same chart, we also have a new channel forming with resistance at $20,450.

The first resistance level for BTC is at $20,800 which is on the downtrend. Following that, the $20,000 level on the SMA100 will be the next resistance level. Breaking through $20,000 could pave the way for further short-term growth. In which case, the $20,200 and $20,450 will be next in line. By then, the $20,750 near the 50% Fibonacci retracement level is a critical resistance level. Last but not least, the $21,000 is a key resistance level for Bitcoin.

On the other hand, if Bitcoin price fails to surpass $19,800 and $20,000, it would approach the bottom of the channel. For this scenario, the $19,600, $19,520 and $19,500 will be the next support levels. Then, the $19,450 will be the next support for BTC. Further decline can bring about a new downtrend. Likely, the $19,200 and $18,900 will be the next support levels.
