    Bitcoin Price is Gaining Momentum
    After forming a base above $55,000, bitcoin started a fresh increase. BTC broke many hurdles near $57,000 and $58,000 (as discussed yesterday) to move into a positive zone.
    There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $57,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $61,695 high to $53,220 low.
    It opened the doors for more gains and the price even climbed above $59,000. A high is formed near $59,623, and the price is now well above the $58,000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

    An initial support is near the $58,250 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $53,797 swing low to $59,623 high. On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $59,500 level. The next key resistance is near the $60,000 level. A clear close above the $60,000 level could open the doors for a larger increase towards $61,500 in the near term.
    Fresh Dip in BTC?
    If bitcoin fails to continue higher above the $60,000 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. The first key support on the downside is near the $57,500 level.
    The main support is now forming near the $57,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Any more losses might call for a test of the $55,000 support zone in the coming sessions.
