Bitcoin Price Dives 20%
Bitcoin failed to clear the $58,500 resistance and reacted to the downside. BTC’s decline was got pace after Elion Musk’s tweet about bitcoin mining and not accepting it as payment.
It sparked a strong bearish move below the $52,000 and $50,000 support levels. There was a break below a key rising channel with support near $57,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even dived towards the $45,000 level on Kraken. It is now trading well below $55,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
A low is formed near $45,000 and the price is now recovering higher. It broke the $47,000 and $48,500 resistance levels. Besides, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $58,000 swing high to $45,000 swing low.

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $51,500 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $58,000 swing high to $45,000 swing low. The main resistance is now forming near the $53,000 zone (the previous support). A close above $52,000 and $53,000 is needed to start a decent increase.
Fresh Drop in BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $52,000 resistance or $53,000, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $48,500 level.
A downside break below the $48,500 support zone could restart the decline. The next major support is near the $47,400 level. Any more losses might call for a fresh test of the $45,000 support zone in the near term.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly gaining pace in the bullish zone.
