Bitcoin Price Analysis

Bitcoin price settled above a key barrier at $6,300 against the US Dollar. It opened the doors for more gains and the BTC/USD pair surged above the $6,380 and $6,600 resistance levels. The upside move was such that the price even broke the $6,700 resistance. A high was formed at $6,749 and the price is currently correcting lower. On the downside, there are many supports starting with the $6,650 level.

The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,318 low to $6,749 high is positioned at $6,648 and is likely to hold declines. Should there be a break below $6,648, the price may perhaps trade towards the $6,600 support. More importantly, there is a new key bullish trend line forming with support at $6,480 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The same trend line currently around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,318 low to $6,749 high. Therefore, any major dips from the current levels are likely to find bids near $6,600 and $6,540.
