To start a strong increase, bitcoin must clear the $57,500 barrier and the 100 hourly SMA. The next immediate resistance is near $58,000, above which the price could grind higher towards the $59,500 level. The main resistance is still near the $60,000 zone.
Fresh Drop in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $57,500 resistance or $58,000, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $56,500 level.
A downside break below the $56,500 support zone could lead the price towards the $54,850 pivot level. Any more losses might call for a fresh test of the $53,500 support zone in the near term.
