Bitcoin (BTC/USD) attempted to sustain recent gains early in the Asian session as the pair backed away from the 33000 figure after trading as high as the 32917.39 area during the European session. Traders pushed BTC/USD lower to the 32227.10 level in relatively tight trading, stopping short of testing the 50-hour simple moving average. The 32825 level remains very technically significant, representing the 50% retracement of the long-term historical range from 3858 to 61788.45. Even though BTC/USD has traded above this very significant technical level for quite some time, the recent appreciation from the 29301.56 area initially paused right around this important retracement level. Likewise, the recent trading low of 29301.56 represented a test of the 38.2% retracement of the long-term historical appreciation from 8106.70 to 42400.34.
If BTC/USD extends its recent weakness, downside areas of technical significance include the 29119.95, 28928.79, 28743.48, 28305.60, 28258.75, 28000, 27028.64, 26260.87, 25833.73, 25468.32, and 25247.15 levels. If BTC/USD is able to find a bid, upside areas of technical significance include 33583.61, 35061.28, 36538.94, 39367.23, and 38642.72. Also, the 38236.16 area represents the 23.6% retracement of the depreciating range from the lifetime high of 64899 to 30000.
