 Bitcoin Resumes Decline

Bitcoin started a fresh decline below $40,000 against the US Dollar. BTC is gaining bearish momentum and could even drop to the $35,000 support.

  • Bitcoin started a fresh decline below the $40,000 and $39,000 levels.
  • The price is trading below $40,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $38,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair might continue to move down towards $35,000 unless it recovers above $39,000.

Bitcoin Price Extends Decline

Bitcoin price started another major decline after it failed to stay above the $42,000 support. BTC broke many important supports near $40,000 to enter a bearish zone.

The price gained bearish momentum below the $39,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It even declined below the $38,000 support level and traded as low as $37,801. The current price action suggests more downsides below $37,800.

If there is an upside correction, bitcoin price might face resistance near the $38,500 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41,920 swing high to $37,801 low.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $38,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The first key resistance is near the $39,800 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41,920 swing high to $37,801 low.

Bitcoin Price

A clear move above the trend line resistance and then a move above $39,800 might start a steady increase. The next major resistance for the bulls may possibly be near the $40,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More Losses in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $38,500 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $37,800 zone.

The next major support is seen near the $37,400 level. If there is a downside break below the $37,400 support, the price might start a major decline. In the stated case, there is a risk of a move towards the $35,000 level.
