Bitcoin Price Remains Elevated
Bitcoin started a fresh increase after it broke the key $38,500 resistance zone. BTC even climbed above the $40,000 resistance zone and it settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
However, the price seems to be struggling above the $41,000 level. There were two attempts to gain strength above $41,000, but the bulls failed. The recent high was formed near $41,384 before the price corrected lower. It dipped below $40,500, but the bulls were active near $39,500.

On the upside, an immediate resistance is forming near the $40,450 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $41,384 high to $39,476 low. The first major resistance is near the $40,650 level. There is also a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $40,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

A clear upside break above the triangle resistance could spark bullish moves. The next resistance is near the $41,200 level. A close above $41,200 level is likely to stage a move towards the $43,500 level.
Dips Limited in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $41,200 resistance, it could start a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $40,000 level.
The first major support is near the $39,80 level and the triangle lower trend line. A downside break below the triangle support could push the price towards the $38,500 support level and the 100 hourly SMA.
