Bitcoin update

Bitcoin began last week by falling to a low of $31,000. However, it bounced right back up, leaving a long lower wick in place and reaching a bullish close. The weekly high was at $39,380.

Despite the bullish candlestick, technical indicators are firmly bearish. The MACD is decreasing and its histogram has crossed into negative territory. This has historically been a bearish sign.

The next closest resistance areas are at $43,250 and $47,400. These targets are the respective 0.382 and 0.5 Fib retracement resistance levels.
