    Here’s Why BTC Remains At A Risk of Fresh Drop

    Bitcoin price failed to clear the key $40,000 resistance zone against the US Dollar. BTC is correcting gains and it remains at a risk of more losses towards $36,000 or $34,000.

    Bitcoin is struggling to clear the $40,000 and $40,500 resistance levels.
    The price is currently holding the $37,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    There was a break below a short-term contracting triangle with support near $38,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
    The pair is likely to accelerate lower if it breaks the $37,000 support and the 100 hourly SMA.

    Bitcoin Price Struggles Below $40K
    Bitcoin broke the $40,000 resistance and extended its recovery wave. BTC even cleared the $40,500 level and settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    However, the bulls failed to gain strength above $40,500. A high was formed near $40,923 and the price corrected lower. There was a break below the $40,000 support level. Moreover, there was a break below a short-term contracting triangle with support near $38,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
    The pair gained pace below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $36,472 low to $40,923 high. Bitcoin is currently holding the $37,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

    The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $36,472 low to $40,923 high is also acting as a support zone. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the broken triangle support at $38,500. The first major resistance is near the $39,500 level. The main resistance is still near the $40,000 zone. A proper close above the $40,000 resistance zone could start a strong increase.
    More Losses in BTC?
    If bitcoin fails to clear the $39,500 resistance, there is a risk of more downsides. An initial support on the downside is near the $37,000 level.
    The first major support is near the $36,000 pivot level. If there is a downside break below the $36,000 support, the price could decline towards the $34,000 support zone in the near term.
    Technical indicators:
    Hourly MACD – The MACD is now gaining pace in the bearish zone.
    Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is now below the 50 level.
