Bitcoin price continues to witness strong resistance around the $19,400 mark. Over the last 24 hours, the coin depreciated by 2.9%. At the beginning of this month, Bitcoin price had staged a brief recovery but it was met with selling pressure.
After the coin started hovering near the $18,000 price mark, this level attracted buyers on the chart. Soon after that, BTC moved up on its chart two weeks ago. The technical outlook of the coin indicated that the bears hadn’t given up yet.
The bulls could return to the chart if the coin broke past its immediate resistance mark. Buying strength was lower on the chart, and only an increase in buying strength could move BTC upwards.
If the bulls manage to stick around over the next trading sessions, then BTC can move above the $20,000 price mark. The chance to rally near the $22,000 price level also can’t be called impossible once the bulls clear the $20,000 level.
