Bitcoin Price Eyes Upside Continuation
Bitcoin price managed to stay above the $35,000 zone and started a recovery wave. BTC climbed above the $36,000 resistance zone to move into a short-term bullish zone.
There was a break above the $36,500 and $36,800 resistance levels. Besides, there was a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $43,495 swing high to $32,950 low. It is now consolidating near the $37,000 level and trading well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $37,400 level. There is also a key breakout pattern forming with resistance near $37,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The first major resistance is near the $38,200 zone. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $43,495 swing high to $32,950 low. An upside break above the $38,200 resistance could start a steady upward move. The next key resistance is near the $49,200 level, above which the bulls might aim a test of $40,000. Any more gains might send bitcoin towards the $41,200 level.
Fresh Decline in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to start a fresh increase above $38,200, it could start another decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $36,800 zone.
The first major support is seen near the $36,000 zone and the 100 hourly SMA. A downside break below the $36,000 support zone may perhaps start a fresh decline. The next major support is near $35,400, below which the price could revisit $34,000.
