Bitcoin’s lock-step trading is becoming more or less mundane. The inability to lift above $40,000 appears to be exhausting buyers. On the other hand, most attention is directed toward defending support at $37,000.
Meanwhile, the flagship cryptocurrency trades slightly above $38,000. The primary goal is to support the 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) on the four-hour chart. However, there is a high chance that this immediate anchor will not hold in the short term, paving the way for losses beneath $38,000.

Bitcoin on the verge of another downswing
Bitcoin’s short-term technical outlook shows signs of the bearish pressure taking a toll on the bulls in the coming sessions. The picture comes after the rejection of $40,000. Besides, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) emphasizes the bearish building momentum as it retraces toward the midline.

The downtrend will become more apparent if the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) returns to the negative region. Overhead pressure would be accentuated by the MACD line (blue) crossing under the signal line. Support is anticipated between $37,000 and $36,000, but if broken, BTC could tumble towards $30,000
