Following that, the price set for a recovery and managed to climb back above $42,000 and the SMA100. Yet again, the sellers initiated at $42,800 and turned BTC down again. The highest recorded price in the past few hours is $42,786 before another correction. BTC penetrated the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level from the latest rise from $40,555 to $$2,786.

The first important resistance level is at $42,250 and the SMA100. The next level will be at $43,000. In case of a successful breakthrough from $43,000, there could be a new uptrend with the next resistance level at $44,500.

On the other hand, if Bitcoin price fails to surpass the $43,000, the bear run will continue. In that case, the $41,800 will be the first support level followed by $41,650. By dipping below the support level for the trendline, the price would back down below $41,000. This would pave the way for BTC to quickly fall as low as $40,000.
