    Why Bitcoin Price Is At Risk of A Drop Below $45,000

    Bitcoin price failed to settle above the $50,000 pivot zone against the US Dollar. BTC is now showing bearish signs and it seems like it could even decline below the $45,000 support.
    Bitcoin started a fresh decline after it failed to clear the $51,500 and $52,000 resistance levels.
    The price is now trading well below the $50,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    There was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $49,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
    The pair could move down further towards $45,000 or even $42,000 if it remains in the red zone.
    Bitcoin Price is Showing Bearish Signs
    After a clear break above the $50,000 level, bitcoin recovered further above $51,000. However, BTC faced a strong selling interest near the $52,000 level (as discussed in the last two analysis).
    The price also topped near the 100 hourly simple moving average at $52,000. There was a fresh bearish wave below the $50,000 support zone. The bears gained strength, resulting in a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $49,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
    The pair even broke the $47,000 support and traded as low as $46,228. It is currently consolidating losses near the $47,000 level. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $47,500 level. The first major resistance is near the $49,150 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $52,088 high to $46,228 low.

    The main resistance is now forming near the $50,700 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $52,088 high to $46,228 low.
    A close above the $50,000 level and a follow up move above the $50,700 level may possibly open the doors for a break of the $52,000 resistance zone.
    More Losses in BTC?
    If bitcoin fails to continue higher above the $49,500 and $50,000 resistance levels, there could be more losses. An initial support on the downside is near the $46,200 level.
    The first major support is still near the $45,000 zone. If there is a clear break below the $45,000 support, the price could dive towards the $42,000 support zone.
    Technical indicators:
    Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly gaining momentum in the bearish zone.
    Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is well below the 50 level.
    Major Support Levels – $46,200, followed by $45,000.
