Ongoing breakdown

The six-hour chart shows that BTC has broken down from an ascending support line. 

This coincided with a RSI move below 50 (red icon). Interestingly, the RSI had moved above 50 (green icon) as soon as the ascending support line was created.

Despite this, the price is just above the 0.382 Fib retracement level, a likely place for a bounce.

The two-hour chart for BTC supports the possibility of a bounce. It seems that the downward movement is slowing and gradually turning bullish, as visible by the MACD. 

In addition to this, the RSI has generated some bullish divergence.

If an upward move occurs, the closest resistance area would be found at $40,115. This target is the 0.5 Fib retracement resistance level and a horizontal resistance area.
