Bitcoin Price Could Recover Losses
Bitcoin struggled to stay above the $33,000 zone and it extended its decline. BTC broke the $32,500 and $32,000 support levels to move further into a bearish zone.
The price even spiked below the $31,500 level and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as low as $31,310 and it recently started an upside correction. Bitcoin is now back above the $32,000 and $32,500 resistance levels.
There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $36,170 swing high to $31,310 low. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $33,800 level (the recent breakdown zone).
The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $36,170 swing high to $31,310 low is also near $33,800. The main resistance is now forming near the $35,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $35,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
