Bitcoin Price Tops Again

A high was formed near $44,300 and the price started a fresh decline. The price declined below the $44,000 and $43,500 levels.

There was a move below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $40,515 swing low to the $44,300 high.

The pair is now testing the channel support, below which it might accelerate lower toward $42,400 or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $40,515 swing low to the $44,300 high. If the bulls protect the channel support, there might be a fresh increase.

On the upside, immediate resistance is near the $43,500 level. The first major resistance is forming near $44,000 and $44,300.

A close above the $44,300 resistance could start a strong rally and the price could even clear the $45,000 resistance.

The next key resistance could be near $46,500, above which BTC could rise toward the $47,200 level. Any more gains might send the price toward $48,000.

More Losses In BTC?

If Bitcoin fails to rise above the $43,500 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. Immediate support on the downside is near the $42,800 level.

The next major support is near $42,400. If there is a move below $42,400, there is a risk of more losses. In the stated case, the price could drop toward the $41,200 support in the near term.
