BTC price looks for upside gains
On the daily chart, the BTC price hovers above the psychological $40,000 level, where the BTC buyers struggle to sustain the gains. However, the recent technical setup suggests that BTC could jump back to the recent highs, though challenges remain.
A daily close above the session high could fuel the upward movement toward the 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $42,680.07. This would coincide with the break of the ascending trend line.
Next, market participants would keep their eyes on the critical 200-day EMA at $44,700 followed by the ultimate target of the horizontal resistance line at $45,000.
While things look mildly positive for the BTC price, a failure to hold the key support area around $39,000 would trigger a fresh round of selling in the pioneer cryptocurrency.
In this scenario, investors would collect the liquidity from the demand zone extending from $37,500 to $35,000.
