Bitcoin Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw the start of a downside correction from the $5,359 high in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair corrected below the $5,200 and $5,000 support levels. More importantly, there was a close below the $5,000 level, but the price stayed well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. It declined below the $4,900 level before buyers appeared near the $4,750 support area. A swing low was formed at $4,754 and recently, the price moved higher.
It broke the $4,850 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $5,359 high to $4,754 low. However, the price struggled to break the $5,050 resistance level. At the outset, there is a crucial contracting triangle in place with support near $4,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Above the triangle, there is a strong resistance near the $5,050 level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $5,359 high to $4,754 low is also at $5,056.
Therefore, a clear break above the triangle and $5,050 might open the doors for more gains. However, a convincing break above the $5,100 resistance is must for a fresh increase towards $5,350 and $5,400. On the flip side, the triangle support near $4,800 holds the key. If there is a break below $4,800, the price might test the 100 hourly simple moving average and $4,750.
