Bitcoin Price Analysis
Recently, there was a sharp rise in bitcoin above the $8,600 and $8,650 resistance levels against the US Dollar. Moreover, the price spiked above the $8,800 resistance area and remained well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded close to the $8,950 level and formed a new weekly high at $8,934. However, the price struggled to continue higher and there was a sharp decline below $8,800.
Additionally, the price broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $8,457 low to $8,934 high. There is a large red candle forming on the hourly chart with body below $8,600. The price even traded below the last swing low at $8,457. However, the $8,400 support area is acting as a decent support. More importantly, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support near $8,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
The next key support is near the $8,350 level (the previous resistance area). It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the recent rally from the $8,457 low to $8,934 high. The main support is near the $8,315 level since it coincides with the 100 hourly SMA. Therefore, a close below the $8,000 support might push the price back into a bearish zone.
On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $8,550 level, followed by $8,600. The main resistances are near the $8,660 and $8,800 levels. It seems like the price might trade in a range above the $8,300 support area before it could start a fresh increase.
