Aayush Jindal | July 15, 2018 | 6:30 am

Key Points

  • Bitcoin price formed a decent support near $6,050 and recovered against the US Dollar.
  • There is a key triangle forming with resistance near $6,300 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is facing many hurdles on the upside near the $6,300 and $6,450 levels.

Bitcoin price is preparing for the next move above $6,300 against the US Dollar. BTC/USD could trade higher if buyers succeed in pushing the price above $6,450.

Bitcoin Price Resistances

This past week, there was a sharp downward move from well above $6,750 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair topped near the $6,840 level and declined below the $6,450 support area. The drop was such that the price settled below $6,450 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). However, buyers took a stand near the $6,075 level and prevented further slides.

A low was formed at $6,076 and the price started an upward correction. It moved a few points above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6,842 high to $6,076 low. However, the upside move was prevented by the $6,360 level. More importantly, there is a key triangle forming with resistance near $6,300 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Above the triangle resistance, there is a crucial resistance near $6,440, which is near the 100 SMA. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6,842 high to $6,076 low is at $6,459. Therefore, the $6,450-60 zone could act as a strong resistance.
