Bitcoin Price Extends Decline

Bitcoin price started a major decline below the $45,000 and $43,500 support levels. BTC even declined below the $42,000 support zone to move further into a bearish zone.

The price settled below the $43,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The bears attempted a push towards $40,000. A low was formed near $40,555 before there was a recovery wave. The price recovered above the $42,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

However, the bears remained active near the $42,800 zone. A high is formed near $42,786 and the price is now declining. There was a move below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $40,555 swing low to $42,786 high.

It is now trading near the $41,750 support. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $40,555 swing low to $42,786 high is also near $41,650.

Besides, there is a key rising channel forming with support near $41,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. On the upside, the first major resistance is near the $42,250 level and the 100 hourly SMA. The next major resistance is near the $43,000 level.

A clear move above the $43,000 resistance zone could start a decent recovery wave. The next major resistance is near the $44,500 level.

More Downsides in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to recover above $43,000, it could continue to move down. An immediate support is near the $41,800 zone. The first major support is near $41,650 and the channel trend line.

A downside break below the trend line support could spark a move below $41,000. In the stated case, the price may possibly decline towards the $40,000 level in the near term.
