Bitcoin Price Watch: BTC/USD Recovery Could be Limited

Aayush Jindal | June 12, 2018 | 9:18 am

Key Points

  • Bitcoin price found support near $6,620 after a major decline against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line was breached with resistance at $6,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently correcting higher towards a few important resistances such as $7,000 and $7,200.

Bitcoin price is recovering from the $6,600 support area against the US Dollar. BTC/USD might correct further in the near term, but it could face hurdles around $7,200.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a major downside move in bitcoin price below the $7,000 handle against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined towards the $6,600 level and formed a low at $6,628. Later, an upside recovery was initiated and the price corrected above the $6,700 level. It also traded a few points above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $7,600 swing high to $6,628 low.

Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line was breached with resistance at $6,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. In the short term, there could be more gains towards the $7,200 level. However, there are many resistances for buyers around the $7,000 and $7,200 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $7,600 swing high to $6,628 low is also positioned near $7,170 to prevent gains in the near term. Should there be an upside break above $7,100, the next hurdle could be around the 100 hourly simple moving average.
