On the upside, the initial resistance is near the $59,500 level and the main hurdle is near the $60K level with another major contracting triangle forming with the resistance near $60K on the 4-hour charts of the pair. Another close above the $59,500 and the $60,000 resistance could open the doors for a new rally in the next few sessions. If BTC falls above this level, there’s a risk of a new downside correction with the first major support nearing the $58,200 level and the triangle trend line zone. The next support is near the $57,200 level with more losses calling for a new drop towards the $55,500 support level.
