Bitcoin Price Regains Strength

Bitcoin price remained well-bid above the $40,000 support zone. BTC formed a base and recently started a fresh increase above the $41,000 resistance.

There was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance near $41,050 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair gained strength above the 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $44,699 swing high to the $39,999 low.

Finally, the price tested the $43,000 resistance zone. Bitcoin spiked above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $44,699 swing high to the $39,999 low.

BTC is now trading above $42,000 and the 100 hourly Simple moving average. On the upside, immediate resistance is near the $43,200 level. The first major resistance is forming near $43,500. A close above the $43,500 resistance might start a steady increase.

The next key resistance could be near $44,500, above which BTC could rise toward the $45,000 level. A clear move above the $45,000 level could set the pace for a test of $46,500.

Another Decline In BTC?

If Bitcoin fails to rise above the $43,200 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Immediate support on the downside is near the $42,500 level and the 100 hourly Simple moving average.
