Why Bitcoin Needs To Clear $42,500 For Hopes of a Fresh Rally

 2022-01-20 09:01:55

Bitcoin price struggled to start a decent recovery wave and extended decline below $42,000. BTC even broke the $41,500 support level and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed near $41,159 and the price is now correcting higher. There was a move above the $41,800 resistance zone.


On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $42,400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $42,450 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USDT pair. An upside break above the trend line resistance could start a steady recovery wave above $42,500. The next key resistance is near the $43,000 level, above which the bulls might aim a test of $43,500. Any more gains may perhaps call for a test of the $44,500 resistance zone.


If bitcoin fails to start a fresh increase above $42,500, it could start a fresh decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $41,600 zone. The first major support is seen near the $41,200 zone. A downside break below the $41,200 support zone may perhaps spark another major decline. The next major support is near $40,500, below which the price could even decline below the $40,000 zone.
