Bitcoin Price Aims Fresh Increase

Bitcoin price corrected below the $50,000 support level from the $52,000 resistance zone. BTC broke the $49,500 support level, but the bulls were active above the $49,000 level.

However, it was stable near the $49,000 level. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $47,210 swing low to $51,955 high also acted as a support.

More Losses In BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $50,500 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $50,000 level and the 100 hourly SMA.

The first major support is now forming near the $49,000 level. A downside break below the $49,000 support may perhaps increase selling pressure. The next stop for the bears might be $47,200.
