    After struggling to climb back above $47,000, bitcoin price started a downside correction. BTC traded below the $46,000 support level to move into a short-term bearish zone.
    There was also a break below a key contracting triangle pattern with support near $46,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even traded below the $45,000 and $44,450 levels. A low is formed near $43,748 and the price is currently consolidating losses.

The 61.8% Fib retracement level recent decline from the $47,356 high to $43,748 low is also near the $46,000 level.
