Immediate resistance is near the $52,300 level. It is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $52,843 swing high to the $50,581 low. The next key resistance could be $52,800, above which the price could extend its rally. The next stop for the bulls may perhaps be $53,200. A clear move above the $53,200 resistance could send the price toward the $54,000 resistance. The next resistance could be near the $55,000 level.

Another Decline In BTC?

If Bitcoin fails to rise above the $52,300 resistance zone, it could start another downside correction in the near term. Immediate support on the downside is near the $51,850 level and the trend line.

The first major support is $51,300. If there is a close below $51,300, the price could gain bearish momentum. In the stated case, the price could decline toward the $50,500 support zone.
