Bitcoin Price is Facing Hurdles

Bitcoin price failed to start a decent increase above the $58,000 resistance zone. BTC started a slow decline, and it broke the $57,200 support level to enter a bearish zone.

There was also a close below $57,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the bulls are defending the $56,000 support level. The recent low was formed near $55,848 and bitcoin is now consolidating losses above the $56,000 level.

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $56,600 level. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $59,090 swing high to $55,848 low.

The first major resistance is near the $57,000 level. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with support near $56,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The next major resistance is near $57,500. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $59,090 swing high to $55,848 low.

A clear break above the $57,500 resistance zone could open the doors for more upsides. The next key resistance is near the $58,500 level, above which the price could rise steadily. The next stop for the bulls may possibly be near the $60,000 level.

More Losses In BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $57,500 resistance zone, it could extend losses. An immediate support on the downside is near the $56,100 level.

The first major support is now forming near the $56,000 level. A downside break below the $56,000 support may perhaps start a sharp decline. The next stop for the bears might be $53,500.
