Bitcoin is holding the $47,600 support zone while failing to clear the $48,900 resistance level over the past few hours. BTC formed a base above $47,000 and suffered a downside break below the $48,000 level. If the price continues to move down, the next major support is near the $45,600 level. 

The bulls have not been able to push BTC above the overhead resistance zone between $50,000 and $51,000. With that being said, it seems that the bears have not thrown in the towel yet, indicating a range-bound action in the near term. BTC may continue waving between $46,000 and $49,000 for some time.
