Bitcoin price nosedived below the $3,900 support against the US Dollar. BTC bears are in control and it seems like recoveries could face a strong resistance near $3,900 and $4,000.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the weekly analysis, we saw a solid upward move above the $4,000 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $4,100 resistance area. It traded to a new monthly high at $4,189, where sellers emerged. It seems like the price was rejected near the $4,190 resistance. As a result, there was a sharp bearish reaction below the $4,150 and $4,100 support levels. Sellers gained pace and pushed the price below the key $4,000 support level.

During the decline, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $3,940 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even settled below the $3,900 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a break below the $3,700 support and the price traded towards $3,600. A new weekly low was formed at $3,624 and later the price corrected higher. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,189 high to $3,624 low.

The current price action is bearish and it seems like upsides are likely to be capped near $3,860. However, the main resistance is near the $3,900 level. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,189 high to $3,624 low is near the $3,910 level. Above $3,900, the price could face resistance near $3,950 and the 100 hourly SMA. More importantly, a break above the main $4,000 hurdle won’t be easy for buyers.
