    Why Bitcoin Price Could Extend Its Decline To $41K, 100 SMA Holds The Key

    The price is trading well below $50,000 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
    There is a key declining channel forming with resistance near $49,220 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
    The pair is likely to continue lower towards the $41,000 and $40,000 support levels in the near term.
    Bitcoin Price is Showing Bearish Signs
    This past week, bitcoin price extended its decline below the $47,000 support zone against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even tested the $44,000 support zone and settled well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
    The last rejection zone was near the $52,000 level before the price declined below $45,000. It traded as low $44,360 before correcting higher. It recovered above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $52,229 high to $44,360 low.

    However, the price struggled to clear the $48,000 resistance zone. It also failed to surpass the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $52,229 high to $44,360 low.
    There is also a key declining channel forming with resistance near $49,220 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Bitcoin is currently moving lower and it is likely to test the $44,000 support zone. If there is a downside break below the $44,000 support zone, there are chances of more downsides towards the $41,000 support zone. The next major support is near the $40,000 level.
    Upsides Capped in BTC?
    If bitcoin starts a fresh increase, the first key resistance is near the $48,000 level. The main resistance is now forming near the channel upper trend line and $50,000.
    A clear break above the channel resistance could open the doors for decent increase above $50,000. The next key resistance is near the $52,000 level, above which the price might rise towards the $55,000 level.
