$39,600 expected to elicit “strong pushback”

According to data, BTC/USD reached $39,000 on Wednesday before stabilising.

Furthermore, with gains of 6.8% over Tuesday’s lows, the pair had made a good rebound overnight.

“I don’t appear to be getting the modest downturn, but rather am continuing upward. The structure isn’t affected in any substantial way. The $40k level is critical “A well-known trader, Crypto Ed, responded.

Any surge past $40,000, according to Crypto Ed, might result in a relief bounce followed by a deeper drop than this week.

Meanwhile, Matthew Hyland, a trader and analyst, highlighted $36,300 and $33,000 as the short-term support levels in play. $39,600 was the upward hurdle he needed to breakthrough, as it had been in February.
