Bitcoin Sees a Swift Recovery

The hurdle of $40,550 stays near the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the $42,950 – $38.2K move. BTC’s next resistance stands at $40,950. A clear move past $40,950 and $41K may lead to continued surges by the token.

Downswings Supported in Bitcoin?
Bitcoin may see downward movements if it fails to overpower the resistance at $41K. That will see BTC at the immediate support floor at $40K.
