Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nice upward move above the $6,500 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded as high as $6,553 and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, the price started a downside correction and traded below $6,510 and $6,500. Moreover, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,369 low to $6,553 high.

However, the price is now trading near a major support area at $6,440. More importantly, there is a significant bullish trend line in place with support at $6,440 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,369 low to $6,553 high is also near $6,440. Therefore, the price is likely to hold the $6,440 support and it could resume its upside move. An initial resistance is near $6,480, above which the price may well break the $6,500 barrier again. On the other hand, a break below the $6,440 support could push the price towards the next support at $6,375.
