Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a minor downside correction from the $3,975 swing high in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded below the $3,900 support level, but it found support near the $3,860 level. Later, it formed a support base above $3,860 and finally started a fresh upward move. It broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,974 high to $3,861 low. Besides, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line at $3,900 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The pair settled above the $3,920 level and traded close to the $3,950 resistance. BTC tested the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,974 high to $3,861 low. It is currently consolidating below $3,950, with a bullish angle. The current price action is positive and it seems like there could be more gains above $3,950 and $3,975. However, a successful break above the $4,000 resistance is must for an upside acceleration. The next key resistance is near $4,180 and $4,200 levels.

On the downside, the main support is near the $3,900 level. There is also a major bullish trend line formed with support at $3,900 on the same chart. Should BTC decline below the trend line, it could test the $3,860 and $3,830 support levels. The final support is at $3,800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Below the 100 hourly SMA, the price could decline towards $3,720.
