  • Bitcoin struggled to surpass the $49,500 resistance zone and corrected lower.
  • The price is trading above $48,000 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There was a break below a key rising channel with support near $49,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could start a fresh increase if it stays above the $47,500 support zone.
