Bitcoin (BTC/USD) remained volatile early in the Asian session as the pair attempted to extend the recovery from its recent sharp depreciation that saw significant market value eroded in short order.  Traders knocked ETH/USD as low as the 42880.77 area earlier this week after many significant Stops were elected during the tumble, including below key technical levels around the 46652, 45054, 43330, and 43269 levels.  Selling pressure around the 52944.36 and 48137.48 levels hastened the sharp decline of BTC/USD, and that opened up a test of key intraday technical support around the 46652.63 level. 

Following the recent acute depreciation, retracement areas include the 46321, 45654, 45115, 44576, and 43909 levels.  Additional downside price objectives and areas of potential technical support include the 40360 and 32576 levels.  Traders are observing that the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) is bullishly indicating above the 100-bar MA (4-hourly) and above the 200-bar MA (4-hourly).   Also, the 50-bar MA (hourly) is bearishly indicating below the 100-bar MA (hourly) and below the 200-bar MA (hourly).

Price activity is nearest the 200-bar MA (4-hourly) at 47559.10 and the 50-bar MA (Hourly) at 46405.23.
