Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, there was fresh decline below $3,300 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $3,250 and $3,200 support levels. A new low was formed at $3,121 and later the price formed a decent support above $3,120. As a result, the price started a short term correction and traded above the $3,180 and $3,200 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3,487 high to $3,121 low.

However, the upward move was protected by the $3,260 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $3,220 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The current price action indicates that the price could break the trendline, $3,200, and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful close above $3,220 may push the price towards $3,300 and $3,320. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3,487 high to $3,121 low is also at $3,304.
