Bitcoin Price is Struggling
Bitcoin price failed to gain pace above the $58,500 resistance zone. BTC is slowly moving lower from the last swing high at $58,890. There was a break below the $58,000 level.
The price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $53,300 swing low to $58,890 high. Besides, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support near $57,200 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
Bitcoin is now just trading above $57,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $57,500 level. The first major resistance is near the $58,000 level.

The main resistance is still near the $58,500 level. A clear break above the $58,500 resistance zone could open the doors for more upsides. The next key resistance is near the $60,000 level, above which the price could rise steadily. The next stop for the bulls may possibly be near the $61,200 level.
Fresh Drop In BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $58,000 resistance zone, it could start a fresh decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $57,000 level. The first major support is now forming near the $56,800 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
The next major support is near the $56,000 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $53,300 swing low to $58,890 high. A downside break below the $56,000 support may perhaps push the price towards $55,500. Any more losses might start a major decline towards $52,000.
