Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed a short-term correction below the $6,700 level in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair started a downside move and traded below the $6,620 and $6,600 support levels. Besides, the price traded below the key support at $6,590. More importantly, there was a break below a bearish pattern with support at $6,550 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,102 low to $6,833 high. The current bias is bearish below the $6,520 level. If the price continues to move down, it could test the $6,381 and $6,275 levels. The later one is the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,102 low to $6,833 high. On the upside, the previous support levels near $6,560 and $6,590 are likely to act as hurdle for buyers in the near term. Additionally, the $6,660 level is also a major resistance along with the 100 hourly simple moving average.
