Bitcoin Price Analysis
There were mostly ranging moves above $7,400 in bitcoin price during the past two sessions against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair struggled to break the $7,580 and $7,600 resistance levels. As a result, there was a minor downside reaction from the recent high of $7,602. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $7,260 low to $7,602 high.
However, the decline was limited by the $7,400 support area. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important bullish trend line with current support at $7,450 held declines on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $7,260 low to $7,602 high protected losses below the $7,400 support. The pair is on the move again and it retested the $7,580 and $7,600 resistance levels. Both the mentioned levels are important barriers and preventing gains above $7,650.
Looking at the chart, the price seems to be approaching a crucial break either above $7,600 or below $7,400. On the upside, a break and close above $7,600 could set the pace for a push towards $7,800 and $8,000. On the flip side, a break below $7,400 may perhaps take the price to $7,260.
