Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw the start of a downside correction in bitcoin price from the $4,041 high against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair corrected lower and traded below the $4,020 and $4,000 support levels. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3,846 low to $4,041 high. Besides, there was a close below the $4,000 support and the price tested the $3,940 support area.

More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3,846 low to $4,041 high acted as a strong support. Sellers made two attempts to clear the $3,940 support, but they failed to gain strength. Similarly, buyers pushed the price above the $3,980 level, but they struggled to keep the price in a positive zone. The price was recently rejected near the $3,980 level. It is currently moving lower and it could retest the $3,940 support area.

It seems like buyers might have the last chance for an upside break above the $4,000 resistance. There is also a short term bearish trend line in place with resistance at $3,980 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, buyers need to clear the trend line and the $4,000 resistance for a fresh upward move. If they fail, there could be a strong decline below the $3,940 support area. Besides, a close below the $3,940 support and the 100 hourly SMA could push the price towards the $3,900 or $3,880 support.
