  • The price even broke the last swing low and a major support area near the $10,500 level.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $10,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price remains in a strong target and it seems like the $8,880 bearish target seems real.

Bitcoin price started a fresh decline below the $10,800 support against the US Dollar. BTC is currently correcting higher, but the $10,800 level is likely to act as a sell zone.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the past few days, there were heavy losses in bitcoin price below the $11,000 support against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the key $10,800 support area to extend its decline. Finally, there was a break below the last swing low and a major support area near the $10,500 level. The price settled below the $10,800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing low was formed near the $9,784 level and the price is currently correcting higher.

More importantly, it seems like the $8,880 bearish target (as discussed in the weekly forecast) is now in sight. In the short term, there could be an upside correction above $10,200. The price is currently trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $11,466 high to $9,785 low. However, there are many resistance levels on the upside near the $10,500 and $10,600 levels.

Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $10,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $11,466 high to $9,785 low is just below the trend line. The main resistance is near the $10,800 level (the previous support area). To start a strong recovery, the price must settle above $10,800 level.

On the downside, an immediate support is near the $10,000 level, below which the price may retest the $9,780 level in the near term. If there are more losses, the price may continue to slide towards $9,500 and $9,200.
