Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the past few sessions, there was a steady rise in bitcoin price above the $8,000 barrier against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair gained bullish momentum above $8,150 and even broke the $8,200 level. Recently, the price broke the last swing high and traded above the $8,300 level. A new weekly high was formed at $8,344 before the price started a downside correction.

Still, the price is trading well above the $8,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It corrected below the $8,250 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $8,006 low to $8,344 high. However, the recent decline is finding bids near the $8,175 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $8,006 low to $8,344 high.

On the downside, there are many supports near the $8,175 and $8,150 levels. Moreover, there is a crucial bullish trend line forming with support near $8,140 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The trend line support coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent leg from the $8,006 low to $8,344 high.

Therefore, as long as the price is above the $8,140 level, it is likely to continue higher. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $8,300 level, followed by the $8,344 high. If there is an upside break above $8,344, the price is likely to climb higher towards the $8,500 resistance area.
