Bitcoin Declines from $36K Resistance, Could Find Support at $30K

  • The relative strength index (RSI) is not yet oversold on the four-hour chart, which means sellers could remain active toward lower support levels.
  • Bitcoin failed to reverse a short-term downtrend over the past two weeks as resistance remains strong at between $36,000 and $40,000.
  • The 50-period moving average on the four-hour chart is stabilizing, although the price is attempting to break down, keeping up with a series of lower highs over the past quarter.
  • Bitcoin has remained in a consolidation phase since June, although improving momentum could support a relief bounce if buyers defend $30,000 support.
