However, the price did not break through the $40,000 level and remained well below 100 simple moving averages (4 hours). The high value formed near $40,971, and the price began to fall further. There was a break below the $38,000 support level.
Bitcoin is trading below the 50% Fib retracement level on the upside from a low of $31,296 to a high of $40,971. The main bearish line also forms with resistance near $37,500 on the four hour BTC/USD pair chart.
The pair now tests the 76.4% Fib pull level to drop from $31,296 to $40,971. If the low falls below the support levels of $34,000 and $33,500, the price will likely accelerate to the bottom.
The next significant support is near the $31,250 level, below which the price is likely to test the $30,000 support level in the short term.
