Bitcoin (BTC) is in a downtrend, trading marginally above the $19,540 support. Since August 28, the cryptocurrency has settled between $19,540 and $20,500.

Over the past week, bitcoin has not traded above these price levels. Today, Bitcoin is trading at $19,748 and is approaching the lower price range. The downtrend will continue if sellers break the support at $19,540.

This would send Bitcoin to the lows of $18,638 or 18,912. Bearish momentum could extend to the low of $17,605. The largest cryptocurrency could see a rally if the initial resistances at $20,500 and $21,000 are broken. The BTC price will continue to rise to the upper resistance of $24,000 if the buyers are successful. Today, the price movement is insignificant because there are small indecisive candles called doji.
