Bitcoin Price Could Recover Losses
Bitcoin struggled to stay above the $33,000 zone and it extended its decline. BTC broke the $32,500 and $32,000 support levels to move further into a bearish zone.
The price even spiked below the $31,500 level and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $31,310 and it recently started an upside correction. Bitcoin is now back above the $32,000 and $32,500 resistance levels.
There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $36,170 swing high to $31,310 low. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $33,800 level (the recent breakdown zone).
The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $36,170 swing high to $31,310 low is also near $33,800. The main resistance is now forming near the $35,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $35,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Therefore, bitcoin bulls are likely to face a major resistance near the $35,000 zone and the 100 hourly SMA. The next major resistance on the upside sits at $36,200.

If bitcoin fails to clear the $33,800 resistance or the trend line resistance, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $32,000 level.
The next major support is near the $31,500 level. A downside break below $31,500 could open the doors for more losses. In the stated case, the price might even test $30,000.
