  • The price is now trading above $36,500 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a key breakout pattern forming with resistance near $37,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

The first major resistance is near the $38,200 zone. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $43,495 swing high to $32,950 low. An upside break above the $38,200 resistance could start a steady upward move. The next key resistance is near the $49,200 level, above which the bulls might aim a test of $40,000. Any more gains might send bitcoin towards the $41,200 level.

Fresh Decline in BTC?
