Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of a new low below $5,200 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair did move down and broke the $5,200 and $5,000 support levels. The decline was such that the price fell more than 12% and broke the $4,600 support as well. Ethereum price also declined heavily below the $150 level, igniting bearish moves in the crypto market. However, ripple price remained stable and traded above $0.4800.

Recently, BTC formed a swing low at $4,695 and corrected higher. It moved above the $4,800 level, but upsides were limited. The price failed to climb above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $5,567 high to $4,695 low. As a result, there was a fresh decline and the price declined below the $4,695 low. Sellers took control and pushed the price below the $4,500 support. Going forward, the price is likely to accelerate losses towards the $4,200 and $4,000 levels. On the upside, there are two bearish trend lines formed with resistance near $4,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
