In our previous coverage on Bitcoin price analysis, the correction rally in the BTC/USD pair was trying to sustain above the $40000 support level. The coin price stayed above this level for around two weeks; however, the accumulating negative news for the crypto market like Russia’s central bank called crypto ban and Fed hiking interest rate prompts the ongoing selling.

On January 21st, the BTC price gave a massive bearish breakout from the $40000 support of around 10%, indicating the price might continue its correction. However, so far, the coin price has lost almost half of its value(50%) from the November high of $68,789.2.

The BTC price steadily lowering below the 200 MA line indicates a bearish trend. Moreover, the 20 EMA line provides dynamic resistance to the BTC price.

Moreover, the RSI(24) slope has slipped into the oversold region due to the intense sell-off in the crypto market.

The Descending Trendline Remains As A Troublesome Resistance


The BTC price is currently trading at $35841, indicating a 2.21% intraday gain. The coin price is currently wavering at the support region around 0.5 Fibonacci level and $35000 psychological support. If the price violates this support level, the next crucial support for Bitcoin price will be the May-June 2021 accumulation support of $30000.

However, in case of a bullish reversal, the coin price has to face the descending trendline before it could initiate a proper rally.

  • Resistance levels- $40000 and $45000
  • Support levels- $35000 and $30000
