Bitcoin (BTC) price is in a downtrend while making an upward correction to the high of $21,800.
Bitcoin buyers failed to redeem the cryptocurrency as they failed to keep the price above the $22,000 resistance. On the other hand, Bitcoin could have risen above the moving average lines or the high of $23,400 if the buyers succeed above the high of $22,000.
Moreover, the BTC price would resume the uptrend. Today, the bears are trying to resume the selling pressure as Bitcoin is facing rejection at the high of $21,800. On the downside, the bears will try to retake the current support at $20,790. However, if Bitcoin falls back below the $20,790 support, the downtrend will resume. Bitcoin will continue to fall to the lows of $18,912 and $17,605.
Bitcoin is at level 36 on the Relative Strength Index for period 14, indicating that the cryptocurrency is in a downtrend and approaching oversold territory while declining. The cryptocurrency will continue to decline as long as the price bars are below the moving average lines.
Nevertheless, the BTC price is below the 40% area of the daily stochastic. The market is in a bearish momentum. 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
