Therefore, a close above the $40,750 resistance zone and the trend line might trigger a steady increase. The next major resistance is near the $41,500 level. Any more gains could set the pace for a move towards the $42,500 resistance zone in the near term.
Fresh Decline in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to climb above the $40,750 and $41,500 resistance levels, it could start a fresh downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $49,000 level.
