    Bitcoin Price Corrects Lower

    On the downside, the $47,600 level is a short-term support. The first key support is near the $47,300 level. If there is a downside break below the $47,300 level, the price could continue to move down. The next major support is near the $46,800 level. Any more losses could open the doors for a move towards the $46,000 support zone in the near term.

    Fresh Increase in BTC?

    If bitcoin stays above the $47,000 support zone, it could start a fresh increase. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $48,300 level.

    The first key resistance is near the $48,800 level and the trend line. The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $50,519 high to $47,611 low is also near the trend line resistance. A close above the trend line could set the pace for a decent increase towards the $50,000 level.
