Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a solid upside break above the $4,000 resistance in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair followed a bullish path and traded above a crucial resistance near the $4,040 level. There was a strong close above the $4,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price accelerated gains above the $4,050 and $4,100 resistance levels. A new weekly high was formed near $4,132 and later the price started a downside correction.

Sellers pushed the price below the $4,100 support and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $4,007 low to $4,132 high. There was a spike below the $4,050 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $4,007 low to $4,132 high. However, the previous crucial resistance near the $4,040 level acted as a strong support. The price was also rejected from the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $4,007 low to $4,132 high.

More importantly, there is a crucial ascending channel in place with support at $4,060 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is currently trading above the channel support and $4,070. It seems like there could be another dip towards the $4,040 support before the price starts a fresh upward move. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $4,100 level, above which the price could break the $4,132 high.
