It seems like the 1.618 Fib extension level of the main upward move from the $6,435 low to $10,528 high is acting as a strong support.What are the Chances of a Recovery?Bitcoin is showing a few positive signs above $4,500 and it is trading near $5,000. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $5,600 level.The first major resistance is near the $6,500 area (the previous breakdown zone). If the price manages to climb back above $6,500, it could start a fresh increase in the coming days.Conversely, there is a risk of another decline below the $4,500 and $4,000 levels. The next major supports are near the $3,800 and $3,550 levels, below which the bears are likely to aim a test of the $2,400 level. Overall, the recent decline was nasty and it might take a few months for the market to recover if bitcoin stays above the $4,000 mark.Technical indicators:Daily MACD – The MACD is showing a lot of bearish signs.Daily RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is now well below the 20 level.Major Support Levels – $4,500 followed by $4,000.Major Resistance Levels – $5,600, $5,800 and $6,500.
