Bitcoin (BTC/USD) extended its recent weakness early in today’s Asian session as the pair weakened to the 40571.53 figure following recent strong selling pressure that intensified late last year, resulting in the weakest print since September 2020. Additional selling pressure emerged late this week around the 43594.12 level, representing a test of the 23.6% retracement of the recent depreciating range from 47076.55 to 42432.99. Following BTC/USD’s peak around the 52100 level in late December, a series of lower highs and lower lows led to a significant reduction in risk tolerance and selling pressure increased around the 48574 and 47076 areas. A print around the 42432.99 level represented a test of the 42544.70 area, a downside price objective related to recent selling pressure around the 59249.77 area, and a test of the 42497.20 downside price objective that is related to recent selling pressure around the 52100 level.
