The main resistance is now forming near the $37,000 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $37,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $37,000 resistance zone.
A clear break above the trend line resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average could open the doors for a larger recovery towards the $40,000 level. An intermediate resistance is near the $38,000 level.
Fresh Drop in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $37,000 resistance, there is a risk of a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $34,000 level.
The first major support is now forming near the $32,000 zone. A downside break below the $32,000 support could start a fresh decline towards the $30,000 support zone in the near term.
