BTC is trading below the 50 DMA at $37,544 already, now it is on the verge of breaking the lower trend line of the wedge formation. If that happens then that will create an opportunity for the sellers to enter into the next leg down toward $34k.

The Daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) trades at 37 with a bearish outlook. The momentum indicator is confirming the negative outlook for BTC.

Alternatively, an upside toward $38k could not be ruled out if the price breaks above the mentioned DMA. Next, market participants could test the psychological $40k.
