There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $52,800 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $57,597 high to $47,511 low.

A successful close above the $52,000 and $52,500 resistance levels could open the doors for a fresh increase in the coming sessions.
