If there is a downside break below the $45,000 support level, the price could visit the $44,000 support level.

Meanwhile, the $51,000 and $52,000 levels may further surface as potential resistances should the $50,500 level holds. However, a strong bullish spike might take the price to $57,000, $59,000, and $61,000 resistance levels. But presently, the RSI (14) is below the 35-level.

Following the 4-hour chart, Bitcoin bears are now pushing the price below its previous support level that existed around $49,000.

The RSI (14) moves around 38-level, which may likely give more bearish signals before a reversal could play out.
