There was a clear move below the $40,000 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The price even spiked below the $39,000 level. A low is formed near $38,550 and the price is now correcting losses. There was a move above the $40,000 resistance zone and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $41,000 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair surpassed the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $47,470 swing high to $38,550 low.

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $42,000 level. The next major resistance on the upside is near the $43,000 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $47,470 swing high to $38,550 low.

The next key support is near the $40,000 level. Any more losses might call for a test of the key $38,500 support zone, where the bulls might take a stand.
