Bitcoin Price Revisits Key Support
Bitcoin topped near the $41,350 before it started a downside correction. BTC consolidated above $40,000 for some time before the bulls failed to protect the mentioned support zone.
The price declined below the $40,000 and $39,500 support levels. There was also a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $39,900 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even broke the $38,500 support level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
However, the bulls are protecting the $38,000 support zone (the last breakout zone). The price is now consolidating above the $38,000 level. It is also just below $39,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41,350 swing high to $38,154 low is also near the 100 hourly SMA.

The first major resistance is near the $39,750 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41,350 swing high to $38,154 low.
The main resistance is now forming near the $40,000 zone. A clear upside break above the $40,000 zone is likely to set the pace for a fresh rally in the near term.
