    Here’s Why Bitcoin Price Is Primed To Revisit $52K Support

    Bitcoin price struggled to recover above $57,500 against the US Dollar. BTC is now declining and it remains at a risk of more downsides towards $52,000.

    Bitcoin is facing an uphill task above the $57,000 and $57,500 levels.
    The price is now trading well below the $57,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    There is a key declining channel forming with resistance near $56,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
    The pair is likely to continue lower towards $53,000 and $52,000 in the near term.

    Bitcoin Price Resumes Decline
    Bitcoin started a decent recovery wave above the $55,000 resistance zone. BTC broke the $56,500 and $57,000 resistance levels.
    There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $63,750 swing high to $51,150 swing low. However, the bulls faced an uphill task near the $57,500 level and it also remained well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    It seems like bitcoin was rejected near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $63,750 swing high to $51,150 swing low. It is now trading well below the $57,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

    There is also a key declining channel forming with resistance near $56,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is a downside break below the channel support at $54,000, there is a risk of a drop towards the $53,000 support zone. The next major support is near $52,000, where the bulls might take a stand.
    Upsides Capped in BTC?
    If bitcoin remains stable above the $54,000 level, it could attempt an upside break. The first key resistance is near the channel trend line at $56,000.
    An upside break above the channel resistance could open the doors for a move towards the $57,500 resistance. The next major hurdle for the bulls could be $58,000 or the 100 hourly simple moving average. A close above the $57,500 and $58,000 levels is must to change the current bearish bias in the near term.
