Bitcoin Price Breaks Key Barrier

Bitcoin price formed a base above the $46,500 zone and started a steady increase. BTC was able to clear the $48,500 resistance zone to move into a positive zone.

Bitcoin is now trading well above $49,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is consolidating near the $49,800 resistance zone. On the downside, an initial support is forming near the $49,650 level.

The first key support is forming near the $49,500 level. If there is a downside break below the $49,500 support zone, the price might decline towards $48,800. The next major support is near the $48,500 level, where the bulls are likely to emerge.

More Upsides In BTC?

If bitcoin stays above the $49,500 support zone, it could continue to rise. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $49,850 level. The first major resistance is near the $50,000 level.

A close above the $50,000 level could lift the price further. The next stop could be the 1.236 Fib extension level of the key decline from the $49,678 swing high to $46,533 low. Any more gains could lead the price towards the $52,000 resistance zone in the coming sessions. An intermediate resistance is near the $51,550 level.
