Bitcoin Price Struggles Below $40K

Bitcoin broke the $40,000 resistance and extended its recovery wave. BTC even cleared the $40,500 level and settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

However, the bulls failed to gain strength above $40,500. A high was formed near $40,923 and the price corrected lower. There was a break below the $40,000 support level. Moreover, there was a break below a short-term contracting triangle with support near $38,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The pair gained pace below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $36,472 low to $40,923 high. Bitcoin is currently holding the $37,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $36,472 low to $40,923 high is also acting as a support zone. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the broken triangle support at $38,500. The first major resistance is near the $39,500 level. The main resistance is still near the $40,000 zone. A proper close above the $40,000 resistance zone could start a strong increase.
