    Bitcoin Price Extends Losses
    After a break below $53,000, bitcoin extended its decline. BTC broke the $52,500 and $51,200 support levels to move further into a bearish zone.

    There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $52,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the triangle resistance, the price could even break $53,150. The next key resistance is near the $53,800 level.
    The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $57,234 high to $50,400 low is also near $53,800. A successful break above $53,800 is likely to open the doors for a move towards $54,500 or $55,000.
    Fresh Drop in BTC?
    If bitcoin fails to correct higher above $52,500 and $53,150, there are chances of more downsides in the near term. An initial support is near the $51,000 level and the triangle lower trend line.
    The first key support is now near the $50,500 level, below which the price is likely to test the $50,000 support zone. Any more losses might push the price towards the $48,000 support zone in the near term.
