Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, we saw a lot of bullish moves above the $3,600 support in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair rallied above the $3,800 and $3,900 resistance levels. However, sellers fought hard near the $3,950 and $4,000 resistance levels. As a result, there were a couple of bearish moves, but the $3,800 support area acted as a solid buy zone. Finally, buyers had the upper hand and pushed the price above the $3,950 and $4,000 resistance levels.

More importantly, there was a break above a major triangle pattern with resistance near $3,950 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair settled above the $4,000 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The upward move was such that the price traded to a new 2019 high above $4,100. It traded towards the $4,200 level and a high was formed at $4,191. The price is currently correcting lower, but it remains well supported above $4,100 and $4,050. An initial support is the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3,871 low to $4,191 high.

On the downside, there are many supports near the $4,050 level. Below $4,050, the next support is near the $4,030 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3,871 low to $4,191 high. The main support is near the $4,000 level (the previous resistance). Therefore, if there is a downside correction, the price may perhaps find buyers near $4,050 and $4,000.
