Bitcoin Price Is Facing Hurdles

There was a clear break below the $48,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price broke a connecting bullish trend line with support near $48,000 on the hourly chart. The last swing high was formed near $48,323 before the price declined below $47,500.
The bulls are now protecting the $46,800 support zone. A low is formed near $46,827 and bitcoin is now consolidating losses. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $47,200 level. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $48,323 high to $46,827 low is also near the $47,200 level.

The first major resistance sits near the $47,550 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $48,323 high to $46,827 low. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $48,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
To start another increase, the price must clear the $48,000 resistance. The next major resistance is near the $48,500 zone, above which the price could easily rise towards the key $50,000 resistance.
