Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis

Bitcoin price formed a support base above the $50,500 level. BTC started a fresh increase and broke many hurdles near $52,000 to enter a fresh uptrend.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, the price cleared a major declining channel with resistance at $51,850. The price settled well above the $55,000 resistance zone, the 100 simple moving average (red, 4 hours), and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4 hours).

It tested the $57,500 zone and is currently consolidating gains. Immediate resistance is near the $58,000 level. The next resistance is near $58,800.

A successful close above the $58,800 level might start another steady increase. In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise toward the $60,000 level. Any more gains might send Bitcoin toward the $62,000 level in the near term.

If not, the price might start a downside correction. Immediate support is near the $55,800 zone. The next major support is $55,000. Any more losses might send the price toward the $53,850 support zone.

The next key support is near the $53,200 level, below which there is a risk of a drop toward the $52,000 level in the coming days.
