Bitcoin Price Action Analysis

BTC started to recover starting from $47,000. It managed to surpass $48,500 and $49,000. At some point, it went above $50,000 and the SMA100.

However, the $50,800kicked the price down. The highest recorded price in the past few hours has also been $50,788 before turning bearish. With that, Bitcoin lost the $50,000 level once again. It dipped below the 50% Fibonacci retracement level from the latest rise from $46,943 to $50,788. Furthermore, in the 1-hour chart, the price lost the support level of an upward price channel at $49,500. As of now, the price is below $50,000 and the 1-hour candles are below the SMA100.

The first resistance level is at $49,200 followed closely by $49,500. Yet, the primary resistance level is the $50,000. In case the 24-hour candle closes above $50k, Bitcoin can finally bounce back. The next resistance level is expected at $50,800 which could pave the way to reach $52,000.

On the other hand, if Bitcoin price fails to surpass the $50,000, the price could decline in short-term. In that case, the $48,500 will be the first support level followed by $48,400. This level is close to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. Dipping below $48,400 could bring BTC close to the breakdown support at $47,000.
