Yesterday, we discussed the chances of a strong rise in BTC if it breaks $10,600 against the US Dollar. The price did gain bullish momentum above the $10,500 and $10,600 resistance levels. It opened the doors for more gains above the $10,700 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price surpassed the $10,800 resistance and traded to a new weekly high at $10,960.
Recently, the price started a downside correction below the $10,900 level. Moreover, it traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,267 low to $10,960 high. It seems like there could be an extended downside correction towards the $10,500 support level. An immediate support is near the $10,600 level (the previous resistance). Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,267 low to $10,960 high is near the $10,600 level.

Bitcoin price clearly remains well supported on the downside near the $10,600 and $10,500 support levels. If there is a bearish break and close below $10,500 plus the 100 hourly simple moving average, the price could move back into a bearish zone.
