The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $51,955 swing high to $47,298 low. A clear break above the $49,500 resistance zone could open the doors for more upsides. The next key resistance is near the $50,000 level, above which the price may possibly start a steady increase.
More Losses In BTC?
If bitcoin fails to clear the $49,500 resistance zone, it could continue to move down. An immediate support on the downside is near the $48,000 level.
