Bitcoin Price Analysis
In the past five days, there was a sharp rally in bitcoin price above the $7,000 resistance area against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $7,200 and $7,350 resistance levels. The price tested the $7,500 resistance level and settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing high was formed $7,590 and recently the price corrected lower sharply. It traded below the $7,200 support level and spiked below the $7,000 pivot level.
The price tested the key $6,700-6,800 support area, and a swing low was formed near the $6,733 level. BTC price recovered nicely and traded above the $7,000 level, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $7,590 high to $6,733 low. However, the price seems to be facing a tough resistance near the $7,150 and $7,160 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $7,590 high to $6,733 low is also acting as a resistance. A clear break above the $7,160 level may open the doors for a fresh increase above $7,200 and $7,250 in the near term.
On the downside, there is a decent support forming near the $7,000 level. Moreover, there is a new connecting bullish trend line forming with support at $6,940 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, the pair remains well supported near the $6,950 and $7,000 levels. Below $6,950, the price could retest the main $6,700-6,800 support area.
