Bitcoin price showed a lot of bullish signs this past week, and it looks like BTC/USD remains in an uptrend as long as it stays above $440.
Bitcoin Price- 100 SMA as a support area
Bitcoin price surged higher as the BTC bulls managed to outpace the sellers. There was a break and close above the $450 level, but the price found sellers near $470, and moved down sharply. However, there is a bullish trend line on the 4-hours chart (data feed from Bitstamp) of BTC/USD, which acted as a support and stalled the downside move.
The highlighted trend line and support area acted as a buy zone and pushed the price higher. BTC traded positively, and cleared the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the drop from the $470 high to $435 low. Currently, the price is finding sellers near 61.8% Fib retracement level of the same wave. So, there is a chance of a minor correction from the current levels.
Buying dips may be a good option in the near term, as on the downside, the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) may act as a barrier for sellers along with the highlighted trend line and support area. Stop should be placed below the trend line if you are looking to buy.
