BTC price recovered in the past few sessions and climbed back above the $5,000 resistance level.The recent recovery was positive since the price was able to clear the 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $6,000 swing high to $4,333 low. The bulls were able to push the price above the $5,200 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.Bitcoin is now trading in a positive zone above the $5,350 level.

If they fail to lead the price above $6,000 and $6,500, there are high chances of another bearish wave in the near term.Technical indicators:Hourly MACD – The MACD is about to move into the bullish zone.Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is currently rising and it is above the 50 level.Major Support Levels – $5,200 followed by $5,000.Major Resistance Levels – $5,600, $5,950 and $6,000.
