The next major resistance could be near the $41,200 zone and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful break and close above the $41,200 level might start a steady increase. In the stated case, the price might rise towards the $42,000 level. Any more gains might send the price towards the key $42,500 barrier in the near term.
Downside Break in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $41,200 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $40,500 zone.
The next major support is seen near the $40,000 level. It is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $38,810 swing low to $42,370 high. A downside break below the $40,000 support zone could start a sharp decline. In this case, the price may perhaps decline towards the $38,500 level.
