Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed that bitcoin price may trade to a new weekly low below $6,275 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair did trade lower and broke the $6,275 support. A new weekly low was formed at $6,261 and later the price recovered a few points. The price is back above the $6,275 level, but it is well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. Buyers pushed the price above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $6,377 high to $6,261 low.

However, there are many resistances on the way up around the $6,320 and $6,350 levels. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $6,350 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The same trend line is near the 100 hourly SMA at $6,345. An intermediate resistance is $6,322 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $6,377 high to $6,261 low. Therefore, if the price corrects higher, it may find a strong resistance between $6,320-6,350.
