BTC made a comeback above the psychological level of $40,000 on Tuesday, and on-chain metrics are showing signs of a further recovery in the asset.

Bitcoin price is in an uptrend that started on September 11, 2023. Bitcoin price is currently below its two long-term Exponential Moving Averages, 10-day EMA at $41,522 and 50-day EMA at $41,886. BTC price briefly dipped into the support zone between $38,169 and $39,600 where 1 million addresses have acquired 423,590 Bitcoins.
Bitcoin recovered from its decline below $40,000, on Tuesday, likely supported by bullish on-chain metrics. BTC could face resistances at the psychological level of $40,000, the lower boundary of the next resistance zone, at $41,466 and the 50% Fibonacci Retracement of its decline between October 2021 and 2022, at $43,074.

A daily candlestick close in the support zone could invalidate the thesis of Bitcoin price recovery. In the event of further decline, Bitcoin could end up in the support zone or nosedive to the 38.2% Fibonacci Retracement level of $36,747.
Bitcoin is the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, a virtual currency designed to serve as money. This form of payment cannot be controlled by any one person, group, or entity, which eliminates the need for third-party participation during financial transactions.
Altcoins are any cryptocurrency apart from Bitcoin, but some also regard Ethereum as a non-altcoin because it is from these two cryptocurrencies that forking happens. If this is true, then Litecoin is the first altcoin, forked from the Bitcoin protocol and, therefore, an “improved” version of it.
Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies designed to have a stable price, with their value backed by a reserve of the asset it represents. To achieve this, the value of any one stablecoin is pegged to a commodity or financial instrument, such as the US Dollar (USD), with its supply regulated by an algorithm or demand. The main goal of stablecoins is to provide an on/off-ramp for investors willing to trade and invest in cryptocurrencies. Stablecoins also allow investors to store value since cryptocurrencies, in general, are subject to volatility.
Bitcoin dominance is the ratio of Bitcoin's market capitalization to the total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies combined. It provides a clear picture of Bitcoin’s interest among investors. A high BTC dominance typically happens before and during a bull run, in which investors resort to investing in relatively stable and high market capitalization cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. A drop in BTC dominance usually means that investors are moving their capital and/or profits to altcoins in a quest for higher returns, which usually triggers an explosion of altcoin rallies.
