BTC Price Hovers Near 50-day EMA; Is $40,000 Possible?

- BTC’s price manages to sustain to pause the previous sell-off.
- More downside toward $40,000 cannot be ruled out if falls below the 50-day EMA.
- A quick recovery above $45,000 could prematurely send BTC to retest $48,000.

BTC trades sideways
On the daily chart, the BTC price is hovering near the 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $43,064.0. This stoppage in the price could be of great significance as it already sliced another critical moving average of the 200-EMA.
Now, if the price failed to sustain the session’s lower levels then it would hit the lows of March 22 at $40,885.19. Further, a sustained buying pressure could find the next support at $37,500.
On the contrary, consolidating near $43,700 could be a key in triggering another leg-up to $45,000. In addition to that, in a more optimistic bullish outlook, BTC’s price could extend and retest its swing highs of $48,124.94.
Now, if the BTC buyers are able to hold the level on a daily closing basis, next they would try to recapture the psychological $50,000.
BTC surged nearly 30% from the lows of $37,500 to the recent swing highs.
