Bitcoin Price Action Analysis

Bitcoin found a strong bottom at $37,500 and managed to pivot upwards and surpass $38,500. On the 1-hour chart, BTC managed to break a key resistance level at $38,475 and stabilize above $39,000 and the SMA100. Finally, the price moved above $40,000 with a spike. The highest recorded price in the past few hours is at $40,029 before going for a correction. Currently, BTC is consolidating above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level from the latest rise from $37,507 to $40,029.

The first resistance level is at $40,000 followed closely by $40,300. Surpassing the $40k level could motivate the buyers and push BTC toward $41,000. With that, the $41,500 will be the next crucial resistance level.

On the other hand, if Bitcoin price fails to surpass $40,000, there could be deeper correction ahead. In that case, the $39,500 will be the first support level followed by $39,000 on the latest breakout point. Further decline can bring BTC down to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. Moreover, dipping below $38,750 can squeeze the buyers out of their positions. Subsequently, BTC can potentially fall as low as $38,500 and the SMA100.
