The price could reach the fib retracement level at 50% for the decline from the $20.443 swing high, to the $19.249 low, if it closes well above this resistance. The price could rise above the $20,000 threshold with any further gains. The price may rise to the $20,500 level in the above scenario.
BTC Dips Limited
Bitcoin could fall further if it fails to climb above $19,700 resistance. The $19,400 area is a support zone for the downside.
Near the $19 250 zone is the next significant support. Risks of further losses could be triggered by a downside breakout below the $19250 support zone. The risk is that the price will move to the $18,500 support area in the above scenario.
