The next key resistance is near the $23,500 zone. A close above the $23,500 resistance zone could set the pace for a decent increase. In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise towards the $24,215 level. The next major resistance sits near the $24,700 level.
More Losses in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $23,500 resistance zone and the channel resistance, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $22,800 level.
The next major support now sits near the $22,640 level. A close below the $22,640 level might spark a sharp decline to $21,750. Any more losses might send the price towards $21,000 level.
