Bitcoin Price is Showing Bearish Signs
This past week, bitcoin price extended its decline below the $47,000 support zone against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even tested the $44,000 support zone and settled well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
The last rejection zone was near the $52,000 level before the price declined below $45,000. It traded as low $44,360 before correcting higher. It recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $52,229 high to $44,360 low.
However, the price struggled to clear the $48,000 resistance zone. It also failed to surpass the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $52,229 high to $44,360 low.
There is also a key declining channel forming with resistance near $49,220 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Bitcoin is currently moving lower and it is likely to test the $44,000 support zone. If there is a downside break below the $44,000 support zone, there are chances of more downsides towards the $41,000 support zone. The next major support is near the $40,000 level.
