Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, there was a slow and steady rise above the $3,600 level in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $3,700 resistance level. However, it seems like buyers failed to gain strength above the $3,750 level. As a result, there was a strong downward move and the price declined below $3,700 and $3,600. The decline was such that the price settled below the $3,600 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More importantly, there was a break below a crucial bullish trend line with support at $3,620 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Sellers pushed the price below the key $3,550 support, opening the doors for more losses. A low was formed at $3,470 and the price is currently correcting higher. It moved above the $3,520 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,729 high to $3,470 low. However, the previous support at $3,550 is now acting as a strong resistance. If there is a break above $3,550, the price could face sellers near $3,600. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,729 high to $3,470 low.
