Since July 20, the price of bitcoin has increased by approximately 50 percent. While BTC climbed above $40,000 for the first time since June 16, it swiftly displayed an overbought warning before beginning its decline.
Following a Momentum Reversal Indicator MRI top that indicated a probable decline, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) suggested that Bitcoin price was overbought on July 30.
The 38.2 percent Fibonacci extension barrier and the 100-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $39,608 is important to support levels for the bellwether cryptocurrency. Should Bitcoin’s price be able to stay above this line of defense, it will be considered a success.
However, if selling pressure intensifies, Bitcoin price might retest the 27.2 percent Fibonacci extension level as substantial support around $36,482, which is located within the demand zone that spans $35,777 to $37,253.With more negative pressure, Bitcoin’s price might hit the 50-day SMA around $34,919.
On the other hand, a convincing upside release will be required for Bitcoin price to reach higher levels, as bulls face multiple technical obstacles, including the 50 percent Fibonacci extension mark at $42,961 and the 200-day SMA at $44,686.
