Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, there was a significant downward move below the $3,650 support level in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even traded below the $3,560 support level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It spiked below the $3,500 support and a low was formed near the $3,465 level. Later, the price recovered a few points above the $3,500 and $3,525 resistance levels. Besides, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3,701 swing high to $3,467 low.

However, the previous support near the $3,550 and $3,560 levels acted as a strong barrier for buyers. The price even struggled to test the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3,701 swing high to $3,467 low. There were a couple of swing moves near the $3,550 level, with no upside break. At the outset, the price is trading inside an expanding triangle with resistance near the $3,580 level. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance near $3,600 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, a break above the $3,580 and $3,600 resistance levels is needed for a decent recovery.
