    Bitcoin Dips From $40K, Here’s Why Uptrend Is Still Intact In BTC

    Bitcoin price started a downside correction from well above $40,000 against the US Dollar. BTC is now trading near a major support at $38,000, where the bulls are currently active.

    Bitcoin started a downside correction after it failed to stay above $40,000.
    The price is currently just below $39,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    There was a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $39,900 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
    The pair is likely to start a fresh increase unless there is a close below the $38,000 support=.

    Bitcoin Price Revisits Key Support
    Bitcoin topped near the $41,350 before it started a downside correction. BTC consolidated above $40,000 for some time before the bulls failed to protect the mentioned support zone.
    The price declined below the $40,000 and $39,500 support levels. There was also a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $39,900 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even broke the $38,500 support level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    However, the bulls are protecting the $38,000 support zone (the last breakout zone). The price is now consolidating above the $38,000 level. It is also just below $39,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41,350 swing high to $38,154 low is also near the 100 hourly SMA.

    The main resistance is now forming near the $40,000 zone. A clear upside break above the $40,000 zone is likely to set the pace for a fresh rally in the near term.
