An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $51,500 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $58,000 swing high to $45,000 swing low. The main resistance is now forming near the $53,000 zone (the previous support). A close above $52,000 and $53,000 is needed to start a decent increase.

Fresh Drop in BTC?
