BTC price fell from the upper resistance zone

Today, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) has fallen to a low of $19,811 as sellers break through support at $20,790. Earlier, the largest cryptocurrency faced heavy selling pressure at the $24,000 and $22,000 resistance zones.

On August 19, the BTC price fell from the upper resistance zone of $24,000 to $20,790. Buyers stopped the decline when the cryptocurrency resumed a sideways movement for a week. However, after an upward correction to the $22,000 resistance zone, Bitcoin came under selling pressure again. 

On August 28, BTC/USD dropped to the low of $19,540 as bulls bought the dips. The current decline has pushed Bitcoin below the psychological price level of $20,000. Today, the BTC price is correcting upwards to reach the high of $19,841. On the downside, the largest cryptocurrency could regain the previous lows of $18,638 or $17,605 if it comes under selling pressure after the recent high. Nevertheless, a further downward movement of the price is doubtful as the market reaches the oversold zone.
