Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, bitcoin price started a decent upward move from the $6,110 support area against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded higher and broke the $6,380 and $6,500 resistances. The best thing was a close above the $6,600 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The price traded above the $6,700 level and tested the next resistance zone near $6,850 (the previous support).

It traded as high as $6,831 and is currently correcting lower. At present, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,111 low to $6,831 high is acting as a support. If the price continues to correct lower, the previous resistance at $6,600 may hold losses. There is also a key bullish trend line in place with support at $6,550 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Below the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,111 low to $6,831 high is at $6,460. Therefore, if the price corrects lower, it could find supports near $6,600, $6,550 and $6,450.
