Bitcoin Price Analysis

After trading above the $6,800 level, bitcoin price started a downside correction against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded as high as $6,833 and corrected below the $6,750 level. During the decline, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,347 low to $6,833 high. However, there is a decent support visible near the $6,600 and $6,590 zone.

At the moment, the price is testing the $6,620 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Below this, the price could test the $6,590 support. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,347 low to $6,833 high. More importantly, there is a short-term declining channel in place with resistance at $6,720 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is a downside break below the $6,590 level, the price may test the $6,550 level in the near term. On the upside, the price has to clear the $6,720 and $6,750 resistances to gain momentum. The next hurdle for buyers could be $6,830 and $6,900.
