0

Bitcoin price struggled to clear the $20,000 resistance zone against the US Dollar. BTC might decline, but there is a key support waiting near the $18,900 zone.

  • Bitcoin failed to gain momentum for a move above the $20,000 resistance zone.
  • The price is trading below $19,400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $19,250 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could move down further to test the $18,900 support zone in the near term.

Bitcoin price is now trading below $19,400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $19,250 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
