Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a sharp decline in bitcoin price below the $3,950 and $3,900 supports against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair found support near the $3,875 level and later bounced back. Buyers gained control and pushed the price above the $3,900 and $3,950 levels. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $4,065 high to $3,875 swing low. However, the price failed to gain strength above the $4,000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

There was also a rejection near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $4,065 high to $3,875 swing low. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $4,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is clearly facing a strong resistance near the $4,000 level. If buyers succeed in surpassing the $4,000 resistance, the next key resistances are near $4,020 and $4,040.

On the other hand, if the price fails to climb above $4,000, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support is near $3,970 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3,873 low to $4,000 high. However, the main support is near the $3,940 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3,873 low to $4,000 high. Any further losses could take the price towards the key $3,875 support level.
