Bitcoin price nosedived below $4,000 and $3,800 against the US Dollar. BTC/USD is currently recovering, but the $4,000 barrier is now acting as a resistance.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

During the past three days, we saw a nasty decline below $4,000 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $3,800 and $3,600 support levels to post a new multi month low. The price even spiked below the $3,500 level and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed at $3,449 and later the price started an upside correction.

It moved above the $3,600 and $3,800 resistance levels. More importantly, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,340 high to $3,449 low. However, the upside move was capped by the $4,080-4,100 zone, which was a support earlier. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $4,080 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair was also rejected near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,340 high to $3,449 low. Clearly, the price is facing a solid resistance near the $4,080 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
