On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $38,800 level. The first major resistance is near the $39,200 zone. A clear move above the $39,200 zone might push the price towards the $40,000 resistance zone. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a larger increase in the coming sessions. The next major resistance above $40,000 might be near the $41,200 level.
Downsides Limited in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to start a fresh increase above $39,200, it could start a downside correction. An immediate support on the downside is near the $38,500 zone.
The first major support is seen near the $38,000 zone. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $36,665 swing low to $39,290 high. The main support is near the trend line and $37,500. A downside break below the $37,500 support zone may perhaps call for a sharp decline in the near term.
