Bitcoin Price Analysis

After multiple failures near the $4,000 resistance, bitcoin price started a sharp decline against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair formed a swing high near $3,980 and later declined below the key $3,940 support area. Sellers gained control and the price even broke the $3,900 support level. The price traded to a new weekly low at $3,855 and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, the price started an upside correction above the $3,900 level.

The price cleared the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,978 high to $3,855 low. However, the price is currently facing resistance near $3,920. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,978 high to $3,855 low. In the short term, the price might correct above the $3,920 level. Having said that, there is a strong resistance near the $3,940 and $3,950 levels.

Besides, yesterday’s highlighted major bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $3,950 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,978 high to $3,855 low might also prevent gains near $3,930. Therefore, if the price corrects higher, it is likely to face a strong resistance near $3,940 and $3,950. A proper close above the $3,950 resistance plus the 100 hourly SMA is must for a decent rebound towards $4,000.
