    Bitcoin Struggles Below $57K, Here’s Why 100 SMA Holds The Key

    Bitcoin price is holding the $55,000 support zone against the US Dollar. BTC must clear the $57,000 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA to move into a positive zone.

    The price is now facing a strong resistance near $57,500 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
    There was a break above a major declining channel with resistance near $55,250 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

    Bitcoin Price is Facing Hurdles
    Bitcoin remained below the main $57,500 resistance zone. BTC declined below the $55,000 support, but it found support near the $53,400 zone. A low was formed near $53,338 before the price started a fresh increase.
    It broke the $54,500 and $55,000 resistance levels. There was also a break above a major declining channel with resistance near $55,250 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even climbed above $57,000, but it failed to clear the 100 hourly simple moving average.

    On the upside, the price is facing a strong resistance near the $57,100 and $57,500 levels. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $57,500 level to act as a hurdle. A successful break above the $57,500 resistance is must to start a strong increase in the coming sessions.
    Dips Supported in BTC?
    If bitcoin fails to clear the $57,000 and $57,500 resistance levels, it could correct lower. An immediate support on the downside is near the $55,200 level.
    The first key support is near the $54,800 level. It is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $53,338 low to $57,151 high. Any more losses may possibly call for a retest of the $53,350 zone in the near term.
