Bitcoin price faces new hurdles

Bitcoin price continues to rise towards the $55,000 resistance zone . BTC gained bullish momentum after breaking above the $55,500 and $56,000 resistance levels. There was also a surge above the $57,000 resistance zone.

A new multi-week high was formed near $57,572, with prices now consolidating gains . There was a slight decline below the $57,000 level, but the price remained above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent swing from the $50,950 low to $57,572 high.

Bitcoin is currently trading above $56,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Immediate resistance is near $57,200. The next key resistance level is likely to be $57,500.

There is also an ascending channel forming with resistance near $57,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair, above which the price could rise towards the $58,000 resistance zone. If the bulls continue to act, the price may even surpass $58,000 and test $58,800. Their main obstacle is visible near the $60,000 area.

Does BTC support the dip?

If Bitcoin fails to break above the $57,500 resistance zone, it may start a downside correction. Immediate support on the downside is near $56,800.

The first major support level is $56,000. If there is a close below $56,000, the price could begin a significant correction towards the 50% Fib retracement of the recent wave from the $50,950 swing low to $57,572 to the $54,250 high. Any more losses could push the price towards the $53,200 support area.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is now losing speed in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is currently above the 50 level.

The main support level – $56,800, followed by $56,000.

The main resistance levels – $57,500, $57,650 and $58,000.
