Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, there were a couple of bearish reactions below the $3,850 level in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair spiked towards the $3,800 level on two occasions, but buyers protected additional losses. Finally, the price started a nice bullish wave and broke the $3,850 and $3,900 resistance levels. It opened the doors for more gains above $3,900 and the price settled above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). During the upside, the price broke a key bearish trend line with resistance at $3,890 to move into a bullish zone.

Buyers gained control and the price rallied above the $4,000 level. It traded as high as $4,041 before sellers appeared. Later, a downside correction initiated below the $4,000 support. Sellers pushed the price below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $3,847 low to $4,041 high. The price declined sharply and tested the previous resistance (now support) at $3,950. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $3,847 low to $4,041 high is currently acting as a support.

More importantly, there is a major connecting bullish trend line formed with support at $3,900 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, if the price continues to move down, it could find a strong support above the $3,900 level. On the upside, an initial resistance is at $4,000, above which the price is likely to retest the $4,040 swing high.
