Bitcoin Gold Price Support
There was a slow and steady rise initiated from the $166 low in bitcoin gold price against the US Dollar. The price managed to move higher and broke the $175 and $180 resistance levels. It even traded close to the $200 level, which is a major resistance. A high was formed at $199.57 from where a downside correction was initiated. It has moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $166 low to $199 high.
However, the downside move seems to be limited below $180. At the moment, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $166 low to $199 high is acting as a support. There is also a short-term bullish trend line forming with support at $185 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD. The trend line support at $180-185 coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average. As long as the price is above the $180 level, it could attempt to clear the $200 resistance.
Overall, it seems like the price is approaching a break either above $200 or below $180. Above $200, the price may accelerate toward the $240 level in the near term.
