Bitcoin chart analysis
The bitcoin price yesterday formed a new September low at $18180. From that moment, we see a bullish consolidation and price recovery above the $19000 level. We currently have consolidation at that level, and we must hold there before the next bullish impulse. The MA20 and MA50 moving averages provide additional support at the $19,000 level. The next resistance is in the zone around the $19,500 level, and extra pressure at that point can create the MA200 moving average. When the price crosses above, the next target is the $20,000 resistance level. For a bearish option, we need a negative consolidation and a move below the support at $19000. Then we need to stay below, and the price will continue to retreat with increased bearish pressure. Potential lower targets are the $1850 and $1800 levels.
