 2021-12-23 10:55:17


There was a break below a key rising channel with support near $49,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USDT pair. The pair could start a fresh increase if it stays above the $47,500 support zone.


Bitcoin price formed a base and started a fresh increase above the $47,500 level. BTC gained pace for a move above the $48,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The upward move was such that the price even spiked above the $49,200 resistance. However, the bulls failed to pump the price towards the $50,000 level. A high was formed near $49,599 and the price started a downside correction.


There was a break below the $49,000 level, then it fluctuated between $48000 and $49000 and it is facing resistance near the $48,800 zone.


The next key resistance could be $49,200. The main breakout zone is now near $49,500. A clear move above the $49,500 resistance zone could lift the market sentiment for a move above $50,000. The next major stop for the bulls may possibly be near the $51,200 level.


If bitcoin fails to clear the $49,500 resistance zone, it could extend its decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $48,000 level. The first major support is near $47,500. A downside break below the $47,500 level could push the price towards the $46,500 support, below which the price could test $45,500.
