Bitcoin Price Resistance
BTC price gained recently to trade as high as $758 against the US Dollar where it found sellers and moved down. The downside move was sharp, and took the price towards the $665 level. Afterwards, there was a correction initiated during which the price traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $758 high to $665 low.
However, the wave failed and could not gain momentum. There was a rejection around the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $758 high to $665 low. So, it looks like the price made a higher-low and turned down. It recently broke a bullish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed from SimpleFX) of BTC/USD. It can be considered as a sign of further losses in the short term. The most important point is the fact that the price also traded below the 100 simple moving average on the same chart.
It looks like the price may extend the current downside to test the 200 simple moving average (H4) at $680-85. It is where the BTC buyers may appear and try to defend the downside move. If you are planning to sell in the short term, then consider it near the 100 simple moving average with a tight stop for a move towards $690-88.
