A clear move above the $44,750 resistance zone could start a decent recovery wave. The next major resistance is near the $45,600 level and the 100 hourly SMA, above which the bulls might gain strength.
More Downsides in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to recover above $44,500, it could continue to move down. An immediate support is near the $42,650 zone. The first major support is near $42,500 and the recent low.
A downside break below the $42,424 low could push the price further lower. In the stated case, the price may possibly decline towards the $40,000 level in the near term.
