Bitcoin Price Is Showing Bearish Signs

Bitcoin price failed to accelerate higher above the $43,500 resistance zone. As a result, there was a bearish reaction below the $43,000 pivot level.

The price traded below the $42,500 and $42,000 support levels. It even traded close to $41,500 and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed near $41,579 before the price started an upside correction.

Bitcoin price was able to recover above the $42,000 resistance zone. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $43,800 swing high to $41,579 low.

The trend line is near the 50% retracement level of the recent decline from the $43,800 swing high to $41,579 low. A clear move above the $42,800 level might send the price towards the $43,500 resistance. Any more gains may perhaps call for a test of the $44,000 resistance zone. The next major resistance is near the $45,000 level.
