Bitcoin price struggles to recover as uncertainty mounts in the cryptocurrency market.  

Bitcoin price doomed to head  lower

Bitcoin price  has recovered roughly 30% from its crash on May 19. The  move-up has resulted in a test of the $40,586 resistance level.

It appears that investors began to book profits, pushing the pioneer cryptocurrency lower to where it currently trades at $37,486.

The supply zone extending from $43,000 to $46,638, harboring the weekly open at $46,426, is extremely important. There’s a high chance Bitcoin price will not slice through this hurdle  in the coming week, making any upticks above it  short-lived. Therefore, investors need to keep a close eye on this resistance  zone.

A potential  rejection from this barrier  could mainly be caused by market participants caught off guard during the May 19 crash who are trying to break even. Therefore, BTC price may reverse at these levels and head lower.

Assuming Bitcoin tags the weekly open and heads lower, the demand wall at $40,586 will be its first support level. A breakdown of this area will lead to a retest of $34,049.

While the scenario explained above is leaning bearish, a decisive close above $50,000 will invalidate it. If such a narrative were to evolve, investors could expect Bitcoin price to rally by 25% and tag the monthly open at $57,697.
