Bitcoin Price Analysis

There was yet another rejection near the $3,660 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair dipped below $3,600 and retested the key $3,550 support area. Buyers protected the $3,550 support and the price bounced back. It climbed above the $3,580 and $3,600 resistance levels, signaling a decent recovery. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,715 swing high to $3,549 low. More importantly, there was a close above $3,600 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Finally, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $3,585 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. These all are positive signs above the $3,600 level and the 100 hourly SMA. However, the price seems to be facing a solid resistance near the $3,650-3,660 levels. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,715 swing high to $3,549 low. Therefore, a proper close above the $3,660 resistance could clear the path for more gains above $3,700. The next main resistance is at $3,715 and $3,730.
