 2022-05-12 09:45:26

Bitcoin failed to recover above $32,000. BTC is gaining bearish momentum and trading below the key $30,000 support zone.


Bitcoin price attempted a recovery wave above the $32,000 level. However, BTC struggled to continue higher and started a fresh decline below $31,000. There was a clear move below the key $30,000 support zone and the price settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. The decline gained pace below the $29,500 level. Finally, there was a move below the $28,000 level and the price traded to a new multi-week low at $27,700.


Recently, there was a minor upside correction above $29,000. Bitcoin recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $32,132 swing high to $27,700 low. However, the bears were active near the $30,000 resistance zone. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $31,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USDT pair.

The next key resistance could be near the $31,500 level. The key breakout zone is still near the $32,000 zone, above which the price might start a steady recovery wave in the near term.


If bitcoin fails to clear the $30,000 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $28,000 level.

The next major support is seen near the $27,700 level. A downside break and close below the $27,700 support might accelerate losses. The next major support could be $27,200, below which the bears might aim a move towards the $26,500 support zone.
