  • Bitcoin price traded to a new weekly high above $4,060 and later declined sharply against the US Dollar.
  • The price broke the key $3,960 support level and tested the next main support at $3,875.
  • There is a short-term connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance near $4,015 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The recent rebound was positive, but it won’t be easy for buyers to reclaim $4,000 and $4,020.

Bitcoin price rebounded sharply after a massive drop below $3,900 against the US Dollar. BTC must climb above $4,000 to move back in a positive zone and revisit $4,060.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, there was an upside extension in bitcoin price above the $4,020 resistance against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the $4,050 resistance and traded to a new monthly high at $4,065. However, buyers failed to stay in control, resulting in a sharp decline below $4,050 and $4,020. The price even broke the $4,000 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. The decline was strong as the price even failed to hold the $3,950 and $3,900 support levels.

However, the next key support at $3,875 prevented further declines. A swing low was formed at $3,872 and later the price bounced back sharply. It broke the $3,900 resistance and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,065 high to $3,872 low. More importantly, the price rebounded above the $3,950 resistance level. Finally, there was a close above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,065 high to $3,872 low.

At the moment, the price is facing a strong resistance near $3,990 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The main resistance is near $4,000 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $4,065 high to $3,872 low. Besides, there is a short-term connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance near $4,015 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, a break above the $4,000 and $4,020 resistance levels is must for additional gains in the coming sessions.
