Bitcoin Price Turns Red as Bears Take Over Crypto Market

Bitcoin is showing bearish signs below the $20,000 support zone against the US Dollar. BTC could accelerate further lower below the $19,500 support zone.

Bitcoin started a fresh decline and traded below the $20,000 support.
The price is now trading below $20,200 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $20,050 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
The pair could start a substantial decline if it breaks the $19,500 support zone.

Bitcoin Price Remains At Risk
Bitcoin price attempted a recovery wave above the $20,300 resistance level. However, there was no upside break and the price remained in a bearish zone below $20,500.
Recently, Ethereum saw a major bearish reaction below the $1,500 support. As a result, BTC also moved a few points lower and declined below the $20,000 support. It even traded below the $19,600 and tested the $19,500 support zone.
A low is formed near $19,509 and the price is now consolidating losses. Bitcoin price is now trading below $20,200 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $20,000 level. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $20,050 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Besides, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $22,790 swing high to $19,509 low is just above the trend line.
The next major resistance sits near the $21,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the $22,790 swing high to $19,509 low.

A close above the $21,000 resistance might start a fresh increase. In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise towards $21,400. Any more gains might send the price towards the $22,000 resistance zone.
More Losses in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to start a recovery wave above the $20,000 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $19,500 zone.
The next major support is near the $19,200 levels. A clear move below the $19,500 and $19,200 levels might open the doors for a move towards the $18,500 level.
Technical indicators:
Hourly MACD – The MACD is now gaining pace in the bearish zone.
Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is now below the 50 level.
Major Support Levels – $19,500, followed by $19,200.
