Bitcoin Price Resistance
This past week, Bitcoin price managed to recover above the $4000 level once against the US Dollar. The price traded as high as $4106 where it faced sellers and declined once again. The pair traded below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $2965 low to $4106 high. However, the downside move found support near $3500 and the price is now back moving north.
It was a perfect test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $2965 low to $4106 high. Buyers are now facing a crucial test near $3800-3850. There is a monster bearish trend line with resistance near $3850 on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD. The trend line resistance is also near the 100 simple moving average (H4) at $3900. Therefore, a break and close of the $3850-3900 resistance won’t be easy. We can already see the price is losing momentum below $3850.
If the price fails to move above the $3850 level, there can be another downside wave. On the downside, a few key supports are $3600 and $3500. Below $3500, the price could even retest the $3200 level in the near term. On the upside, a close above $4000 would be a great bullish sign.
Looking at the technical indicators:
4-hours MACD – The MACD is still in the bearish zone.
4-hours RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI is currently around the 50 level.
