Bitcoin price is facing a significant resistance against the US Dollar. BTC is likely to climb sharply if it settles above $5,250 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Bitcoin Price Analysis
This past week, there was a sharp drop in bitcoin price below the $5,200 support against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even spiked below the $5,000 support level and formed a swing low above $4,900. Later, the price started a slow and steady recovery above the $5,000 and $5,050 resistance levels. The bulls even pushed the price above the $5,100 resistance and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $5,509 high to $4,905 low.
It opened the doors for more gains above the $5,150 level, but the price struggled to clear the $5,200 and $5,220 resistance levels. It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $5,509 high to $4,905 low is acting as a hurdle. Besides, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also acting as a key resistance near $5,220. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $5,230 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
Therefore, the price must break the $5,220 resistance, the trend line, and the 100 hourly SMA. A successful close above $5,250 is likely to start a decent upward move towards the $5,300 level. The next major resistance for the bulls is near the $5,380 level. On the other hand, if there is no upside break, the price may decline below $5,150. An initial support is near the $5,100 level, below which the next stop could be $5,050.
