Bitcoin Price Analysis (BTC/USD)

Yesterday, we saw a solid upward move in bitcoin price above $11,200 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $11,500 resistance and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, the price climbed above the $11,700 resistance and traded close to the $12,000 level. Finally, a swing high was formed near $11,938 and the price recently corrected lower.

It broke the $11,800 level plus the 23% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,830 low to $11,938 high. However, the decline found support near the $11,400 level. Moreover, there was no close below the $11,500 support level. At the moment, the price is trading nicely above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,830 low to $11,938 high.

More importantly, there is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $11,540 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is a downside break below the trend line support and $11,500, there could be an extended correction. Additionally, the next major support is near the $11,250 level. It represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,830 low to $11,938 high.

On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $11,800 level. Moreover, there is a connecting bearish trend line near $11,800 on the same chart. Therefore, a successful break above $11,800 might set the pace for more upsides above the $11,900 and $12,000 levels. Additionally, the next key resistance above $12,000 is near the $12,200 level.
