Bitcoin Price Support
Bitcoin price earlier struggled and moved down by more than $400 to $2400 against the US Dollar. Later, the price found support around the $2400 level and the 100 simple moving average (H4). The price bounced back and moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $2929 high to $2406 low. The upside move was positive above $2600 despite all uncertainty regarding Bitcoin cash and Hard Fork.
The upside move was capped by the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $2929 high to $2406 low. There is also a crucial contracting triangle pattern with support at $2600 forming on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD. The triangle resistance is near $2750, which may act as a breakout level for the next move. As long as the price is above the $2500 handle and the 100 simple moving average (H4), it may continue to move higher.
As we move closer to 1st August 2017, there can be an increase in volatility. Once the dust settles, there are chances of BTC price surging higher. A break and close above the triangle resistance at $2750 could open the doors for more gains.
