As mentioned before and in our previous price analysis, the bearish momentum is far from being over.
Despite the bounce from $3700 to $3900, since it’s Nov.29 high ($4400) Bitcoin is creating lower lows (as seen on the hourly chart).
The current weekly bottom lies at $3630 (Bitstamp). Reaching there was followed by a nice bounce back above the $3800 level, touching the 50 days moving average line (the pink line on the 1-hour chart).
Looking at the 1-day & 1-hour charts

- The mid-term: As can be observed on the daily BTC chart, the $3700 support line still holds, while the overall movement is bearish according to the orange marked descending trend-line.
- From the bull side: the next resistance lies at the 50 days moving average (~$3850), descending trend-line at $3900. $4000 -$4050 resistance along with 200 days moving average (purple line).
