Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a minor upside correction from the $4,038 swing low in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair climbed higher and broke the $4,220 and $4,350 resistance levels. The price also succeeded in clearing the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $4,765 swing high to $4,038 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price moved above the $4,500 resistance.

Moreover, there was a break above a short term contracting triangle with resistance at $4,480 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. These are positive signs since the price is now placed above the $4,440 and $4,220 supports. An immediate resistance is near $4,592 and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $4,765 swing high to $4,038 low.
