Bitcoin failed to stay above the main $42,000 and $42,150 support levels.
The price is now trading well below $45,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The pair is likely to continue lower below the $40,000 support levels in the near term.

Bitcoin Price Breaks Double Bottom
Bitcoin started a decent recovery from the $42,000 and $42,150 support levels. However, the bulls failed to push the price above the $46,000 resistance zone.
As a result, the price started a fresh decline below the $44,000 level. The bears were able to push the price below the main $42,000 and $42,150 support levels (double bottom zone). It is now trading well below $45,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Bitcoin tested the $40,500 support zone and it is showing a lot of bearish signs. An initial resistance is near the $41,800 zone. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $45,774 high to $40,472 low.
There is also a new major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $44,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. An intermediate resistance is near the $43,200 zone. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $45,774 high to $40,472 low.

A successful close above the $43,200 and $44,000 levels could open the doors for a decent recovery in the coming sessions. The next major resistance sits near the $46,000 level.
