If there is an upside break above the $40,200 resistance zone, there are chances of more upsides. The next major resistance is near the $40,800 and $41,000 levels. A close above $41,000 could trigger a steady increase towards the $42,000 level.
Dip Supported in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to climb above the $40,200 and $40,500 resistance levels, it could start another downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $39,400 level and the triangle lower trend line.
The first major support is now near the $38,600 zone. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $36,397 swing low to $40,930 high. A clear downside break below the $38,600 support might call for a move towards the $37,600 level. The next major support is near the $37,200 zone.
