    Bitcoin Price is Holding Key Support
    This past week, bitcoin price saw a steady increase above the $55,500 resistance against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the $58,000 resistance and it settled above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
    The pair even climbed above the $59,500 level and spiked above the $60,000 resistance. However, there was no close above the $60,000 level. A high was formed near $60,030 and the price started a fresh decline. It broke the $58,500 and $58,000 support levels.
    The price declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $50,465 swing low to $60,030 swing high. There was also a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support near $59,000 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.

    The pair tested the $56,500 support zone and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). There is also another bullish trend line forming with support near $56,800 on the same chart.
    If there is a downside break below the trend line support, $56,500, and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours), there are chances of a major decline towards $55,250. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $50,465 swing low to $60,030 swing high. Any more losses might call for a test of $53,800.
    Fresh Increase in BTC?
    If bitcoin stays above the $56,500 support and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours), there are chances of a fresh increase.
    The first key resistance is near the $58,000 level. A successful close above the $58,000 level might open the doors for a fresh push toward the main $60,000 resistance zone. The next key barrier sits near $62,000.
