There is also a bearish trend line forming with resistance near $23,000 on the same chart. The next major resistance is near the $23,360 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $24,081 high to $22,629 low is also near $23,360.

Bitcoin price must break the trend line and then gain pace above the $23,360 to start a fresh increase. The main hurdle for the bulls is still near the $24,000 zone.
