Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)
This past week, bitcoin price declined heavily below the $12,200 and $12,000 support levels against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $11,500 support and settled below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). However, the bulls were able to hold the key $10,800 and $11,000 support levels (as forecasted in the recent analysis).
The recent drop from the $13,182 swing high was initiated once there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at $12,100 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $9,708 low to $13,182 swing high. It opened the doors for more losses and the price even spiked below the $11,000 level.
However, the $10,800 support level holds the key and is protecting more losses. Moreover, there was no close below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $9,708 low to $13,182 swing high. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $11,500 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Above the 100 SMA, the price could face a strong resistance near the $12,000 level.
If there is a successful close above $12,000, the price could start a fresh increase towards the $12,400 and $12,500 levels. Conversely, if the bulls fail near $11,500 or $12,000, there could be another dip. More importantly, there is a risk of a downside break below the key $10,800 support area. In the mentioned case, the price could test the $8,880 support area. It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the upward move from the $9,708 low to $13,182 swing high.
