There was a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $58,000 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
The pair is recovering losses, but it is facing a strong resistance near $57,000.

Bitcoin Price Trims Gains
Bitcoin cleared the $58,800 and $59,000 resistance levels. It even spiked above $59,500 level, but there was no follow through move. It struggled to even test the $60,000 resistance zone.
As a result, there was a bearish reaction below the $58,500 and $58,000 support levels. There was also a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $58,000 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair dived below the $55,500 level and the 100 simple moving average (H4).
It traded as low as $53,445 and it is currently correcting losses. There was a break above the $54,000 and $54,500 levels. Bitcoin even climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $59,590 high to $53,445 low.

The price is now trading near the $55,500 support and the 100 simple moving average (H4). An initial resistance is near the $56,500 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $59,590 high to $53,445 low.
The key resistance is now near the $57,000 level. A successful break above the $57,000 level is needed to start a fresh increase towards the $59,500 resistance zone in the near term.
More Losses in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $56,500 resistance or $57,000, it could extend its decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $54,500 level.
The first key support is near the $53,500 level and the recent low. Any more losses might call for a test of the main $52,500 support zone.
