Bitcoin Price Uptrend
This past week, bitcoin price traded with mostly bullish bias above the $9,000 support level against the US Dollar. The price slowly moved higher and broke the $9,250, $9,500 and $9,700 resistance levels. It traded close to the $10,000 level and formed a high at $9,960. Buyers failed to push the price above the $10,000 level, but the bias is still positive.
There was a minor downside correction from the $9,960 high. BTC price declined and traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8,847 low to $9,960 high. However, the decline was prevented by the $9,600 support level. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support at $9,600 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $8,847 low to $9,960 high also acted as a support. At the moment, the price is placed nicely above $9,600 and it may continue to move higher during the coming days.
Looking at the chart, it seems like the price could accelerate gains above the $10,000 level. Above this last, the next stop for buyers could be $10,800 and $11,000 in the near term.
