Bitcoin price started a recovery wave above the $36,000 and $37,000 levels yesterday. BTC was even able to clear the $37,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the bulls faced a strong resistance near the $38,200 and $38,500 levels. A high was formed near $38,490 and the price started a fresh decline.
There was a break below the $37,200 support zone. Besides, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support near $37,150 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USDT pair. Bitcoin price is now trading below $37,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $37,000 level. The first major resistance is near the $38,000 zone. The main resistance is still near the $38,500 zone. An upside break above the $38,500 resistance could start a steady upward move. The next key resistance is near the $39,200 level.
If bitcoin fails to start a fresh increase above $38,000, it could start another decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $35,700 zone. The first major support is seen near the $35,000 zone. A downside break below the $35,000 support zone may perhaps push the price towards the $33,200 support zone.
