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.
Looking at the chart, the price is approaching a key break either above $6,300 or below $6,175. Below $6,175, the $6,000 support may be tested, followed by $5,800. On the other hand, above $6,300, the price will most likely break $6,450.
