It is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $63,700 swing high to $58,140 low. A clear break above the trend line resistance and then $62,000 may possibly call open the doors for a move towards the $63,000 level. The next major resistance sits near the $64,000 level.
Fresh Decline In BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $62,000 resistance zone, it could start a fresh decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $61,000 level. The first major support is now forming near the $60,500 level.
A break below the $60,500 support may possibly put a lot of pressure on the bulls in the near term. The next key support is near the $60,000 level, below which there is a risk of a larger decline. In the stated case, the price might slide towards the $58,500 level.
