If there is a clear break above the trend line resistance, bitcoin price could recover towards the $32,000 resistance. The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward wave from the $34,915 high to $29,271 low is also near the $32,000 level along with the 100 hourly SMA.
A successful break above the $32,000 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA could open the doors for a strong increase. The next major resistance is near the $32,800 and $33,000 levels.
Fresh Dip in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $31,300 resistance or $32,000, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support is near the channel support at $30,000.
The main support is now forming near the $29,250 zone. A clear break below the $29,250 support zone could open the doors for a larger decline towards $28K.
