Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis: Can BTC/USD Break Higher?

Aayush Jindal | June 10, 2018 | 5:48 am

Key Points

  • Bitcoin price is placed nicely above the $7,200 level with positive signs against the US Dollar.
  • There is a key bearish trend line in place with resistance at $7,750 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair must accelerate gains above the $7,750 and $7,800 barriers for more upsides in the near term.

Bitcoin price is moving in a bullish zone above $7,200 against the US Dollar. BTC/USD may perhaps clear the $7,800 resistance to jump above $8,000 in the near term.

Bitcoin Price Resistance

This past week, bitcoin price mostly traded in a range above the $7,000 handle against the US Dollar. The best part was the fact that the price stayed above the $7,200 and $7,400 support levels. There was also a break and close above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $8,613 high to $7,050 swing low. There are positive signs, but there is a crucial barrier around the $7,800 level.

However, the upside move is capped by the $7,780 and $7,800 levels. More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line in place with resistance at $7,750 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $8,613 high to $7,050 swing low is also around the trend line. Therefore, there is a major hurdle forming for buyers just around $7,800. A break and close above $7,800 may perhaps clear the path for a push above the $8,000 level.
