Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed a possible upside break above $4,100 and $4,200 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. However, the BTC/USD pair failed to clear the key $4,080 resistance, resulting in a bearish reaction. The price declined heavily below the $4,000, $3,950 and $3,800 support levels. The decline was nasty as there was a close below $3,750 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

During the decline, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $4,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair fell significantly and tested the next key support at $3,550-3,570. Later, the price started consolidating losses and traded above $3,600. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,037 high to $3,549 low. It seems like it won’t be easy for buyers to push the price above $3,660 or $3,680. If they succeed, the next major resistance is at $3,740. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,037 high to $3,549 low is at $3,793.
