An immediate resistance is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $40,155 swing high to $36,508 swing low. The main resistance is still near the $40,000 zone. A clear upside break above the $40,000 resistance zone could spark a strong upward move.
The next major resistance is near the $42,000 level. Any more gains could open the doors for a larger recovery towards the $45,000 level.
