A clear break above the $50,500 resistance zone could open the doors for more upsides. The next key resistance is near the $52,000 level, above which the price may possibly start a major increase.
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.
