Bitcoin Price Analysis

During the past few hours, there was a slow and steady rise from the $6,198 swing low in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded above the $6,200 and $6,320 resistance levels to move into a short term positive zone.

Besides, there was a break above a major contracting triangle with resistance at $6,330 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair traded above the $6,400 level and tested the $6,450 resistance where sellers appeared.
