Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw an upside break above the $6,320 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair gained traction and it climbed above the $6,450 and $6,510 resistance levels. There was a positive price action developed above the $6,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price even tested the $6,600 level where sellers emerged.

The chart indicates that the price tested the $6,600 resistance on two occasions and failed. This means there is a chance of a double top pattern forming near $6,600. On the downside, an initial support is near the $6,510 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $6,200 swing low to $6,600 high. Moreover, there is a short term ascending channel in place with support at $6,505 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If the pair breaks the channel support, it could decline towards $6,400. The $6,400 support is important since it is the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $6,200 swing low to $6,600 high.
