Bitcoin Reaches Key Juncture, Why BTC Could Struggle To Recover


Bitcoin price extended its decline below the $33,500 support against the US Dollar. BTC is now consolidating above $32,200, below which it could accelerate lower.

  • Bitcoin started a fresh decline below the $33,500 and $33,200 support levels.
  • The price is now trading below the $33,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $33,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could correct higher, but the bulls are likely to face resistance near $33,500.

Bitcoin Price Testing Key Support

Bitcoin failed to stay above the $33,500 support and it extended its decline. BTC even broke the $33,000 support zone and it settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The price even spiked below $32,200, but there was no follow through move. It is now consolidating losses above the $32,200 support zone. It is now approaching the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $35,975 swing high to $32,150 low.

There is also a short-term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $33,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The triangle support is near the $32,200 zone.

The next major support is near the $30,500 level. Any more losses might push the price below the main $30,000 support zone in the near term.

Upsides Limited in BTC?

If bitcoin remains stable above the $32,000 support zone, it could start an upside correction. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $33,000 level.

If there is a close above the $33,500 resistance zone, the price could rise towards the $34,000 resistance. The main hurdle is still near the $35,000 zone.
