Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, bitcoin price declined below the $4,000 support level against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair gained bearish momentum and traded below the $3,700 and $3,600 support levels. The decline was such that the price traded close to the $3,200 level. The price formed a new yearly low at $3,215 and it is currently well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

Recently, there was a tiny upside correction above $3,400. BTC also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,051 high to $3,215 low. However, the recovery faced a lot of selling interest near $3,550-3,600. Besides, there is a significant bearish trend line formed with resistance at $3,630 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,051 high to $3,215 low. Therefore, it won’t be easy for buyers to surpass the $3,550, $3,600 and $3,700 resistance levels. Above $3,700, the next key hurdle for buyers is at $4,000.
