Bitcoin (BTC/USD) remained volatile early in the Asian session as the pair tried to sustain gains above the 20000 figure after recently trading as low as the 18603 level, stopping short of testing the 17787.51 area that represents the 50% retracement of the appreciating range from 3858 to 31717.02. Traders then quickly lifted BTC/USD to the 20879.99 area before profit-taking saw the pair moderate. BTC/USD continues to orbit the 20195.33 area, a previous downside price objective related to selling pressure that originated at the all-time high of 69000, and later intensified around the 52100 level. If BTC/USD extends its recent downside momentum, important technical levels and price objectives include the 18545, 18453, 16990, 15502, and 14500 areas.
