Bitcoin Price Analysis

The past two days were very bullish on bitcoin price above the $5,500 resistance against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the $5,650 and $5,700 resistance levels to trade to a new 2019 high. The pair even surged above the $5,800 level and settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded as high as $5,837 and recently started a downside correction. As a result, it broke the $5,650 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $5,372 low to $5,837 high.

However, there are many supports near the $5,550 and $5,500 levels. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $5,372 low to $5,837 high seems to be acting as a strong support near $5,540. More importantly, this week’s followed two bullish trend lines are intact with support near $5,500 and $5,480 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If the price dips again, the bulls are likely to defend the $5,500 support area. The last line of defense is near $5,480, and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $5,372 low to $5,837 high.

On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $5,650 level. The next key resistance is near $5,650 and a connecting bearish trend line on the same chart. A successful close above $5,650 may call for a fresh increase above $5,700 and $5,750.
