Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a solid upward move above the $3,560 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. However, the BTC/USD pair ran into a significant resistance area near the $3,600 and $3,620 levels. There was a rejection pattern formed near the $3,615 level. The price also failed to settle above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3,708 swing high to $3,465 low. An intraday high was formed at $3,614 and later the price declined below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The decline was such that the price traded below the $3,560 level. It tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $3,441 low to $3,614 high. The current price action is clearly bearish below $3,580 and it seems like there could be more declines. The next stop for sellers could be near the $3,500 level and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $3,441 low to $3,614 high. Below $3,500, the price is likely to test the $3,480 and $3,460 support levels. On the upside, there are many barriers near the $3,600 level. Moreover, this week’s followed key bearish trend line is in place with resistance near $3,570 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
