Bitcoin price started an increase from the $37,500 support yesterday but began to decrease in the late night((Aug. 4, UTC)). BTC start the day above $39K and now is trading around $38K.
From the hourly chart, MACD continues to be in the overbought range. It can be observed in the figure that the frequency of large sell orders is significantly faster than large buy orders, and the long-short ratio continues to rise at this stage. It seems that Bitcoin is moving into a negative zone.
However, the decreasing amplitude is shrinking that which may indicate Bitcoin is struggling to retake the $40K within today. Now the $39,500 becomes the resistance for Bitcoin, once it turns it to the support line, BTC can go to the coveted $40,000, and then challenge the $42,000. If Bitcoin fails to build up strong support above $37,500, then it can fall below $37,000 and take some time to recover.
