The BTC/USD pair traded below the $3,900 and $3,860 supports to enter a short term bearish zone. There was also a close below the $3,860 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $3,761 low to $3,940 swing high. It opened the doors for more losses below the $3,840 support.

More importantly, there was a break below a crucial ascending channel with support at $3,830 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair extended losses and tested the $3,800 support level. At the moment, it is consolidating losses above the $3,800 support. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,911 high to $3,801 low. However, the main resistance is near the broken channel and the $3,860 level. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,911 high to $3,801 low is also near $3,856.

On the downside, a break below the $3,800 support could open the doors for more losses. The next immediate support is at $3,780, below which the price could tumble towards the $3,700 level.
