Bitcoin Gold Price Forecast
There was a decent rise in bitcoin gold price above $300 this past week against the US Dollar. The price was able to move above the $320 and $340 levels. A new high was formed at $347.46 from where the price started a downside correction. It moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $190 low to $347 high. However, there are many supports on the downside such as $260 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
There are also two important bullish trend lines forming with support near $280 on the 4-hours chart of BTG/USD. These trend lines are holding the current downside move and preventing losses below $260. The pair recently tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $190 low to $347 high. It seems like the pair is above a major support area at $260-280. As long as the pair is above the stated support zone, it could move higher above the $310 level in the near term.
Above the mentioned $310, there can be more gains above $340. There are even chances of it breaking the $350 level. On the flip side, a break below $260 could accelerate downsides toward $200 in the near term.
