It is now approaching the $50,000 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $50,200 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The triangle resistance is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $52,640 swing high to $46,350 low. A clear break above the triangle resistance could open the doors for a fresh increase towards the $52,000 and $53,000 resistance levels. The next major hurdle for bitcoin could be near $55,000.

Limited Downsides in BTC?

If bitcoin fails toc clear the $50,000 and $50,500 resistance levels, it could correct lower. The first key support is near the $48,800 level.

The main support is near the triangle lower trend line and $48,000. A clear break below the triangle support zone could clear the path for a move towards the $45,00 support zone in the near term.
