Bitcoin Price Analysis
After a strong rebound, bitcoin price tested the key $8,300 resistance area against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded as high as $8,301 and later corrected lower. It traded below the $8,000 and $7,800 support levels. However, the pair found a strong buying interest near the $7,600 support level and a swing low was formed at $7,575. Recently, the price recovered above the $7,800 level and stayed well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, there was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $8,301 high to $7,575 low. The price traded above the $8,000 level, but it failed to gain momentum above the $8,120 level. Besides, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $8,301 high to $7,575 low acted as a strong resistance. The price is currently trading below $8,000, with many supports near the $7,800 and $7,850 levels. More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted important bullish trend line is intact with support near $7,810 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
The main support on the downside is near the $7,600 area and the 100 hourly simple moving average. If there is a successful close below the 100 hourly SMA, there could be additional losses towards the $7,300 or $7,200 support. On the upside, a convincing break above the $8,120 level may open the doors for more gains. The main hurdle for the bulls is near the $8,300 level, above which there could be a solid rally towards $8,500.
