Bitcoin Price Crucial Support
There were a couple of swing moves in Bitcoin price towards $4500 against the US Dollar this past week. The price declined on a couple of occasions, but the $4000-4100 support area held the downside. The price recently recovered from the $4018 low. It traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $4966 high to $4018 low. It even moved above the $4500 level and the 100 simple moving average (H4).
However, the upside move faced sellers near $4650. Buyers failed to place the price above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $4966 high to $4018 low. The price moved down and traded below the $4500 support and the 100 simple moving average (H4). On the downside, there is a key bullish trend line with support at $4150 forming on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD.
The pair is approaching the trend line support at $4150 and remains at a risk. If sellers manage to break the $4150 support, there can be more declines. The next target could the $3950 level, which is a crucial support. On the upside, the 100 simple moving average (H4) and a connecting trend line at $4450 are major barriers.
