    Bitcoin cleared the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $62,692 high to $51,132 low. The price is now facing resistance near the $55,500 and $56,000 levels.
    The first major resistance is near the $57,000 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $62,692 high to $51,132 low. The main resistance is now forming near the $58,500 level, above which the price might start a fresh increase.
    More Losses in BTC?
    If bitcoin fails above the $56,000 level, there is a risk of more losses. The first major support is near the $55,000 and $54,800 levels.
    The next major support is near the $53,800 level. Any more losses might call for a fresh drop towards the $52,000 support levels. In the stated case, there are even chances of a drop towards the main $50,000 support zone in the near term.
