Bitcoin Price Analysis

During the past two days, we mostly saw range moves below the $6,700 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair recently faced an increased selling pressure and declined below the $6,540 support. The price even settled below the $6,500 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like buyers failed to gain traction above the $6,620 level, resulting in a bearish break.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important contracting triangle was breached with support at $6,520 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair traded towards the $6,400 support and formed a low at $6,401. It is currently correcting higher towards the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $6,598 high to $6,401 low. It may perhaps continue to move higher towards the $6,500-6,520 zone, which is likely to act as a resistance. It also represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $6,598 high to $6,401 low. Besides, there are two connecting bearish trend lines in place with resistance near $6,520.
