Bitcoin price (BTC) is in a downtrend and continues its decline.
On September 18, Bitcoin turned down from the 21-day line SMA, signalling the resumption of selling pressure. On September 17, buyers failed to push Bitcoin above the 21-day line SMA, leading to the current downtrend. On the downside, Bitcoin could regain the previous lows of $18,675 and $18,638. However, if the bears break below these price levels, Bitcoin will be forced to retarget the critical support level of $17,605. However, if the bulls fail to defend the current support levels, it will lead to another round of downtrends. In other words, if the bearish scenario is confirmed, there will be panic buying and selling of the BTC price.
Bitcoin is at level 36 of the Relative Strength Index for the period 14. The BTC price is approaching the oversold area at level 30. The BTC price is below the 21-day line SMA and the 50-day line SMA, which are responsible for the current decline. It is also below the 20% area of the daily stochastic. This confirms that the cryptocurrency has reached the oversold area. The 21-day line SMA and the 50-day line SMA are sloping south, indicating a downtrend.
Key resistance zones: $30,000, $35,000, $40,000
Key support zones: $25,000, $20,000, $15,000
