The first major resistance is near the $38,000 zone. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $43,490 swing high to $32,940 low. An upside break above the $38,000 resistance could start a steady recovery wave towards $40,000. The next key resistance is near the $41,200 level, above which the bulls might aim a test of $42,000.
Fresh Decline in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to start a fresh increase above $38,000, it could start another decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $36,000 zone.
The first major support is seen near the $35,400 zone. A downside break below the $35,400 support zone may perhaps spark another drop. The next major support is near $34,000, below which the price could revisit the recent low.
