Bitcoin Price Remains At Risk

The price even settled below the $62,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low is formed near $59,824 and the price is now struggling to stay in a positive zone. It is testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $63,700 swing high to $59,824 low.

It is currently facing resistance near the $60,800 and $61,000 levels. The first major resistance is near the $61,750 level and the 100 hourly SMA. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $63,700 swing high to $59,824 low is also near $61,800.
