Bitcoin Price Action Analysis

Bitcoin failed to break through $40,000. The highest recorded price in the past 24 hours is at $39,290 before having a decline. Subsequently, BTC lost the $38,000 support level and dipped below the SMA100. Furthermore, we see BTC has lost a key support level at $37,500 on the 1-hour chart.

With that, the price penetrated the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level from the latest rise from $36,665 to $39,290. For the time being, BTC is showing bearish signs while below $37,000.

The first resistance level is at $37,200 followed closely by $37,500. However, the key resistance level is expected to be $38,000 and the SMA100. In case of a successful break through from $38,000, we could expect a short-term rally. In which case, Bitcoin price could approach $39,250 once again.

On the other hand, if Bitcoin price fails to surpass $38,000, the downtrend will continue. For this scenario, the first support level will be around $36,650 followed by $36,000. This level is near the 1.236 Fibonacci retracement level. Further decline can bring BTC close the $35,500. At that point, losing this level would be detrimental for BTC and could bring it all the way down to $33,200.
