Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, bitcoin price started a short term upside correction from the $3,295 low against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded above the $3,400 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $3,635 high to $3,295 low. The price succeeded in clearing a major bearish trend line with resistance at $3,400 on the hourly chart.

However, buyers struggled to clear the $3,475 and $3,485 resistance levels. A short term top was carved near $3,485. It seems like the price was rejected near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $3,635 high to $3,295 low. It broke an ascending channel with support at $3,405 on the same chart. There was also a close below the $3,400 level and the 100 hourly SMA. The current price action suggests that the price may decline towards the $3,295 low or the $3,250 support. If sellers remain in action, the price could decline to a new weekly low below $3,240.
