Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a monster decline from well above the $7,000 level in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded close to the $6,240 level and formed a low at $6,249. Later, the price started an upward move and corrected above the $6,300 and $6,420 levels. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last key drop from the $6,990 high to $6,249 low.

However, the price is currently facing resistance near the $6,530 level. More importantly, there is a bearish flag forming with current resistance at $6,600 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. On the upside, there is a strong resistance forming near the $6,600-6,620 zone. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last key drop from the $6,990 high to $6,249 low. Additionally, there is a connecting bearish trend line in place with resistance near $6,615. Therefore, the $6,600-6,620 resistance area clearly holds a lot of significance.
