Bitcoin Price Support and Trend
This past week, buyers were in control as bitcoin price succeeded in breaking the $9,000 resistance area against the US Dollar. The upside move was strong and later the price even moved above the $10,000 level to register decent gains. The price is now comfortably placed well above the $10,000 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The recent high formed was at $11,160 from where the price started correcting lower.
An initial support is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8,250 low to $11,160 high. More importantly, there is a major ascending channel forming with current support at $10,150 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The channel support at $10,150 is very important since the same level was a resistance earlier and now it is a good buy zone. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8,250 low to $11,160 high is near $10,040.
Therefore, if the price corrects lower from the current levels, it could find support near $10,000. On the upside, the price has to break the $11,160 level to gain momentum towards $11,600 and $12,000.
