A bunch of healthy supports guards the further downside, as observed in Bitcoin’s 15-minutes chart.
The confluence of the 21, 100 and 200-Simple Moving Averages (SMA) around the $34,200 region rescued the BTC bulls.
At the time of writing, the no.1 coin is attempting a bounce back towards the $35K mark, quickly retracing the drop to now trade at $34,720 levels.
The price wavers in a descending triangle formation, with the falling trendline hurdle at $35,025 likely to challenge the recovery.
A sustained break above the latter could validate a triangle breakout, opening doors for a test of the $38,000 level.
