Bitcoin

Bitcoin price started an upside correction above the $48,000 and $50,000 levels against the US Dollar. BTC is now consolidating above $50,000, but it could face a major hurdle near $52,000.

  • Bitcoin recovered nicely and it even managed to settle above the $50,000 resistance level.
  • The price is facing a strong resistance near $52,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $49,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair must clear the $52,000 resistance zone for upside continuation in the near term.

Bitcoin Price is Facing Hurdles

After a clear break above the $48,000 level, bitcoin recovered further above $49,000. BTC seems to be forming a support base above the $48,000 level, but it is still well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The price is now trading well above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward wave from the $58,400 swing high to $45,000 swing low. There was also a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $49,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Bitcoin price is now consolidating above the $50,000 level. However, there are a couple of important hurdles waiting on the upside near the $51,500 and $52,000 levels.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward wave from the $58,400 swing high to $45,000 swing low is also near the $51,600 level to act as a major resistance. The main resistance is still near the $52,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A clear break above the $51,600 and $52,000 resistance levels is needed for more upsides in the near term. The next major resistance above the $52,000 level could be near the $55,000 level.

Another Dip in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to continue higher above the $51,500 and $52,000 resistance levels, there could be another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $49,500 level.

The first major support is now forming near the $48,000 zone. If there is a clear break below the $48,000 support, the price could revisit the $45,000 support in the near term.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly gaining momentum in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is back above the 50 level.

Major Support Levels – $49,500, followed by $48,000.
