The next major resistance could be near the $47,800 zone and the triangle trend line. A successful break and close above the triangle resistance might push the price towards $48,200. The next major hurdle on the upside might be near the $49,000 level. Any more gains could send the price towards the key the $50,000 level.
Dips Supported in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $47,800 resistance zone, it could correct further lower. An immediate support on the downside is near the $47,000 zone. The next major support is seen near the $46,800 level. The key support is now forming near the $46,400 level and the triangle trend line. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $44,468 swing low $48,200 high.
A downside break below the $46,300 support zone could send the price to $46,000 and the 100 hourly SMA. Any more losses might put a lot of pressure on the bulls in the near term.
