Why Bitcoin Needs To Clear $43,800 For Hopes of a Fresh Rally

 2022-02-15 07:23:53

Bitcoin is recovering losses and trading above $43,000. BTC must clear $43,800 to continue higher in the near term.


Bitcoin price extended decline below the $42,000 support zone yesterday. However, BTC found support above the $41,500 zone. A low was formed near $41,573 and the price started a decent recovery wave.



There was a break above the $42,000 and $42,500 resistance levels. The price climbed above the key decline from $41,570 low to $43,600 high. Besides, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near $42,250 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USDT pair.


Bitcoin is now trading above $43,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It even broke the $43,500 resistance zone. However, the bulls are now facing resistance near the $43,800 zone. A clear move above the $43,800 resistance zone might send the price further higher. The next major resistance is near $44,850, above which the price might rise towards the $45,500 resistance level.


If bitcoin fails to continue higher above the $43,800 resistance zone, it could start a downside correction. An immediate support on the downside is near the $43,200 zone. The next major support is seen near the $42,850 level (the recent breakout zone). If there is a downside break below the $42,850 support zone, the price might start a fresh decline. The next support sits near $42,000, below which there is a risk of a new low below $41,570.
