Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

This past week, there was a decent upward move above $4,000 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded in a range above the $3,940 support level and finally broke the $4,000 resistance level. Buyers pushed the price above the $4,020 resistance and a new monthly high was formed at $4,064. However, buyers failed to hold gains above $4,020, resulting in a sharp decline below $4,000. The price dropped heavily and broke the $3,960 and $3,940 support levels.

There was even a spike below the $3,900 support and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Having said that, buyers defended the $3,900 support and the price bounced back sharply above $3,940. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $4,064 high to $3,869 low. The recent recovery was solid, but the price faced a strong offer zone near the $4,000 resistance. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $4,064 high to $3,869 low also acted as a hurdle.

At the moment, the price is consolidating below the $4,000 resistance. Besides, there is a short term connecting bearish trend line in place with resistance at $3,990 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. A clear break above the trend line and $4,000 could open the doors for a fresh upward move. On the downside, there are many supports near the $3,940 and $3,920 levels. There is also a crucial bullish trend line forming with support at $3,920 on the same chart.
