Bitcoin Price Analysis
Yesterday, BTC traded to a new weekly low near $7,770 against the US Dollar. Later, the price started an upside correction above the $7,850 and $7,920 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above the $8,000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. During the rise, there was a break above yesterday’s highlighted declining channel with resistance near the $8,060 level on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
The pair even climbed above the $8,200 resistance and tested the $8,350 level. A swing high was formed near $8,348 and the price is currently correcting gains. It is trading towards the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rebound from the $7,770 low to $8,348 high. It seems like there is a rising channel forming with support near the $8,200 level on the same chart.
If there is a downside break below the channel support, the price could correct lower towards the $8,150 level. The main support on the downside is near the $8,050 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rebound from the $7,770 low to $8,348 high is close to the $8,060 level to provide support.
Therefore, dips towards the $8,050 level might find support in the near term. Any further declines could push the price towards $8,000 or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent rebound from the $7,770 low to $8,348 high. On the upside, there are many hurdles near $8,350, $8,400 and $8,500. A successful close above the $8,500 resistance is must for the price to move into a positive zone.
