  • There is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $8,200 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

This past week, bitcoin price corrected lower below $7,660 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $7,600 support level and traded as low as $7,474. However, dips remain protected and the price recently bounced back above $7,600 and $7,800. There was a strong upward move above the $8,000 level and the price remained well above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The price tested the $8,200 resistance level and it is currently correcting gains.

An immediate support is near the $7,950 level. The main support is near the $7,840 level, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $7,474 low to $8,200 high. More importantly, it seems like there is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $8,200 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is a downside break below the triangle support at $7,840, the price could test the $7,600 support. The 100 simple moving average (4-hours) is also near the $7,600 level.

If there is a daily close below the $7,600 and $7,500 levels, the price may perhaps start a strong downward move. Conversely, if there is an upside break above the $8,200 resistance, the price could start a strong rally. The next immediate resistance is at $8,300, above which the next target might be $8,500 or $8,800.

Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly forming a crucial breakout pattern with resistance near $8,200. A successful close above the $8,200 and $8,300 resistances is likely to start a strong upward move. If the bulls continue to struggle near $8,200 or $8,300, there might be a fresh decline. On the downside, the $7,500 support area holds the key. A successful close below $7,500 is likely to push the bulls on the back foot.
