Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis

Bitcoin price corrected lower after it spiked above the $50,000 resistance. BTC tested the $48,250 zone and recently started a fresh rally.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, the price is trading above a key bullish trend line with support at $49,650. There was a strong increase above the $50,000 level. BTC settled well above the 100 simple moving average (red, 4 hours) and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4 hours).

The bulls were able to pump Bitcoin above the $52,000 level. Immediate resistance is near the $52,450 level. The next resistance is near $53,200. A successful close above the $53,200 level might start another steady increase.

In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise toward the $55,000 level. Any more gains might send Bitcoin toward the $56,200 level in the near term.

If not, the price might start a downside correction. Immediate support is near the $50,800 zone. The next major support is $50,000 or the trend line. Any more losses might send the price toward the $49,200 support zone.

The next key support is near the $48,800 level, below which there is a risk of a drop toward the $46,500 level in the coming days.
