Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, bitcoin price moved higher above the $3,800 resistance against the US Dollar. However, the BTC/USD pair struggled a lot to clear the $3,900 resistance level. To start with, a swing low was formed near $3,720 and later the price started an upward move. It broke the $3,800 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The price even traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $3,920 high to $3,722 low.

However, the price faced a strong resistance near the $3,850 and $3,870 levels. Besides, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $3,920 high to $3,722 low also prevented gains. Buyers failed to push the price above $3,900 and later the price declined. It traded below $3,800 and the 100 SMA. Having said that, the price is now approaching the key support area near $3,765. More importantly, there is a major contracting triangle formed with support at $3,765 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
