BTC is continuing to exhibit a lower top formation on the daily as well as 4-hour charts, implying the intermediate downtrend to be continuing.
Prices are trading below the 50-day average and taking support at the 100-day average ($54135). An intermediate downtrend line drawn from the Nov top of $69,000 summarizes the technical set up as shown in the diagram.
However, the momentum indicators of 50- & 100- day ROCs are still trading in their positive territories above zero line and conveys that the intermediate downtrend might have exhausted and a breakout above $59,400 will confirm this trend reversal. If it so happens, $60600 will be the next resistance for BTC.
Support: $0.108, $0.104, $0.098
Resistance: $0.12, $0.123, $0.129
