An immediate resistance is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $40,155 swing high to $36,508 swing low. The main resistance is still near the $40,000 zone. A clear upside break above the $40,000 resistance zone could spark a strong upward move.
The next major resistance is near the $42,000 level. Any more gains could open the doors for a larger recovery towards the $45,000 level.
Dips Supported in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $40,000 resistance, there is a risk of a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $38,200 level.
The first major support is still near the $37,000 zone and the 100 hourly SMA. If there is a downside break below the $37,000 support, the price could decline towards the $35,000 support zone in the near term.
