Avatar Aayush Jindal 1 year ago
  • Bitcoin price started a fresh increase after forming a support base above $6,900 against the US Dollar.
  • The price gained bullish momentum above $7,400 and settled above the key $7,650 pivot level.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near $7,610 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair remains well supported on the downside above $7,600 and it could soon break $8,200.

Bitcoin price is positioned nicely in the positive zone above $7,600 against the US Dollar. BTC could correct in the short term, but dips remain supported near $7,760 and $7,650.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, bitcoin price formed a strong support near the $7,250 level against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair started a strong rise from the $7,230 swing low and climbed above the $7,400 resistance level. The recent upward move was such that the price even climbed above the $7,500 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a clear break above the $8,000 resistance level. The price tagged the main $8,280 resistance level and recently corrected below the $8,150 level.

There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $7,230 low to $8,288 swing high. However, the $7,800 level is acting as a strong buy zone. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $7,230 low to $8,288 swing high is also near the $7,764 level to provide support. More importantly, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support near $7,610 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. It seems like there is a strong support forming near $7,610 and the 100 hourly SMA.

Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $7,230 low to $8,288 swing high is also near the $7,640 level. Therefore, if the price corrects lower from the current levels, the $7,760 and $7,650 levels are likely to act as strong supports. If there is a downside break below the $7,600 support zone, the price might move back in a bearish zone.
