The price broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $30,187 swing low to $36,698 high.

Any more losses may possibly push the price towards the $32,000 support zone. The main support is still near the $30,000 zone.
Fresh Increase in BTC?
If bitcoin remains stable above the $34,000 support zone, it could start a fresh increase in the near term. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $35,200 level.
The next key resistance is near $35,500, above which the bulls are likely to aim a retest of $36,500. Any more gains could lift the price towards the $38,000 resistance. The next major hurdle is near the $40,000 zone.
