- Bitcoin price climbed higher this past week against the US Dollar, and my buying idea worked.
- There is a new bullish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed from SimpleFX) of BTC/USD, which is acting as a support zone.

Bitcoin Price Buy
BTC price was seen trading with a bullish tone this past week versus the US Dollar. Although, the gains were not very high, but the good thing was the fact that the price remained in an uptrend. In this past week analysis, I mentioned that the price may continue to appreciate in the short term. It did move higher, and remained above the all-important $600 support zone.
There was a move above the $610 level on a couple of occasions, but the BTC bulls failed to gain momentum. So, there was a no major move towards the $625 level. However, there is now a new bullish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed from SimpleFX) of BTC/USD. It acted as a support zone on a couple of occasions. And, it looks like the price may continue to find support near it.
On the upside, I am looking for a test of the 1.236 extension of the last wave from the $613 high to $581 low. On a downside, a break below the trend line support may put the price on a path for a test of the 100 simple moving average.
Looking at the technical indicators:
4-hours MACD – The MACD is placed comfortably in the bullish zone, which is a good sign.
4-hours RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI is just around the 50 level, and should hold it.
Major Support Level – $600
Major Resistance Level – $618
