BTC price has resumed a downward move after retesting the $19,600 resistance

Bitcoin bulls have made two attempts at the $20,000 overhead resistance. The king coin encountered bearish consequences after it attempted to breach the psychological price level.

On November 24, buyers pushed the price to $19,400 but failed to breach the overhead resistance. BTC slumped to $16,400 low. On November 30, the buyers came close to breaching the overhead resistance but were repelled at the $19,740 high. 

The crypto fell to $18,528 low and corrected upward. However, the BTC price has resumed a downward move after retesting the $19,600 resistance. Perhaps, Bitcoin will attempt to revisit the previous low at $16,600. The bottom line is that BTC will be range-bound between $16,600 and $20,000 if the overhead resistance remains unbroken. On the other hand, if buyers pushed the price above $20,000, a rally above $22,000 is likely. The coin is trading at $18,000 at the time of writing.
