  • Bitcoin price remained well bid near the $3,980 and $3,940 supports against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterday’s highlighted key bullish trend line is intact with support at $3,990 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price may dip a few points towards $3,950 before making another attempt to clear $4,100.

Bitcoin price traded to a new weekly high above $4,100 against the US Dollar. BTC is correcting lower, but dips remain supported above $3,940 in the near term.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed about a couple of important supports near $3,940 for bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair did correct lower recently, but it found support near $3,940. Later, the price recovered nicely above $4,000 and the $4,050 levels. Buyers even breached the last swing high at $4,084 and a new weekly high was formed at $4,113. However, buyers failed to retain strength, resulting in a drop below $4,080.

The price even broke the $4,000 support and traded close to the $3,950 level. A swing low was formed at $3,966 and the price stayed above the 100 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bullish trend line is intact with support at $3,990 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is now trading above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,113 high to $3,966 low. The current price action is slightly bearish below $4,050. Therefore, there is a risk of a dip towards the $3,950 support to fill buy orders. On the upside, a break above the $4,040 and $4,050 is needed for more gains. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,113 high to $3,966 low is at $4,040.
