The 100 hourly simple moving average could also act as a hurdle near $37,800. A clear move above the trend line resistance and $38,000 could set the pace for a steady increase.
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 $37,000 zone.
The first major support is seen near the $36,300 zone. Any more losses might call for a move towards the $36,000 support zone. If the bulls fail to protect $36,000, there could be a sharp decline in the near term.
