Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction: BTC/USD Declines After Failing to Break the $40,500 Resistance
Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – February 7, 2021
Following the reclaiming of the $34,500 support and the clearing of the $38,000 resistance, BTC/USD price rallied to the psychological price level of $40,000. The upward move could not be sustained as Bitcoin faces rejection. Bitcoin price is retracing and may find support above $37,000.
Resistance Levels: $45,000, $46,000, $47,000
Support Levels: $35,000, $34,000, $33,000
BTC price is retracing after failing to break the $40,500 resistance level. On the upside, if the bulls have broken the resistance level, the upside momentum would have resumed. The next target price would have been the $50,000 high. However, as price retraces, it may find support above $37,000 for the continuation of the upward move. Nevertheless, if the price retraces and breaks below the moving averages, the coin will face further decline. On the other hand, if BTC price finds support above the 21-day SMA or $37,000 support, the upward move is likely to resume. Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index has fallen from the overbought region to level 56. It indicates that the coin is in the uptrend zone and capable of rising.
