Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)
This past week, bitcoin price started a short term recovery after trading below $7,600 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded as low as $7,441 and settled below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Recently, it recovered above the $7,700 and $7,800 resistance levels. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,835 high to $7,441 swing low.
However, the upward move faced a strong resistance near the $8,000 and $8,150 levels. The price also faced a strong resistance near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,835 high to $7,441 swing low. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $7,950 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the trend line, the price could recover further above $8,150. The next key resistance is near the $8,300 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,835 high to $7,441 swing low is also near the $8,300 level to act as a hurdle for the bulls. If they surpass $8,300, the price could rally towards the $8,500 level. Conversely, if the price fails to move above the trend line and $8,000, there could be a downside break. On the downside, an immediate support is near the $7,700 level, below which there is a risk of more losses in the near term. The next key support is at $7,600, below which the price could even clear the $7,440 swing low.
