If there is a downside break below the $37,200 support, the price may even struggle to stay above the $36,500 support. Any more losses could open the doors for a move towards the $35,000 support zone in the near term.
Fresh Increase in BTC?
If bitcoin stays above the $37,200 support, it could start a fresh increase. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $38,200 level.
The first major resistance is near the $38,500 level and the bearish trend line. A successful break above the trend line could lead the price towards the $39,500 resistance zone and the 100 hourly SMA. A close above the 100 hourly SMA is must for a fresh increase above the $40,000 resistance zone in the coming sessions.
