    Markets Report: Bitcoin sees rejection at $19,500 as all-time highs expected

    Major volatility characterizes Bitcoin as it nears its historic highs, while one trader eyes a 20% pullback to $14,000

    On Tuesday, Bitcoin surprised market participants once more by tackling and maintaining $19,000 as support for much of the day. After hitting $19,420, subsequent performance was less self-assured, and a retracement overnight bottomed out at below $18,700. As was the case with $18,000, however, a rebound saw the focal level return, and at press time, Bitcoin had already beaten its previously daily high, aiming for $19,500 before a fierce rejection.
