Bitcoin Price Analysis
In the past two days, there was a steady decline in bitcoin price from well above $10,500 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded below the $10,200 and $10,000 support levels to enter a bearish zone. Moreover, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $9,248 low to $11,200 swing high. It opened the doors for more losses below the $10,000 support.
More importantly, the price settled below the $10,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the outset, the price is trading below the $9,800 support. Moreover, the price even failed to stay above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $9,248 low to $11,200 swing high. Therefore, there is a risk of more losses towards the $9,300 and $9,200 levels.
The last swing low near $9,248 might act as a support. However, if there are more losses below $9,248, the price may accelerate towards the $9,100 level. The next major support is near the $8,800 level. The 1.236 Fib extension level of the upward move from the $9,248 low to $11,200 swing high is also near $8,800. On the upside, there is a strong resistance forming near $9,950 and $10,000.
Besides, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line is intact with resistance near $10,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, a close above the $10,000 level might a short term recovery. The next major resistance is near the $10,400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A successful close above $10,400 is needed for a fresh increase to $11,000.
