Bitcoin Price Analysis
In the past three sessions, there was a steady rise above $5,280 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair gained traction above the $5,300 resistance and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price spiked broke the $5,340 level and traded as high as $5,359. Recently, it corrected lower below the $5,320 level, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $5,197 swing low to $5,359 high.
The price even traded below the $5,300 level, but the $5,280 support acted as a strong support. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $5,197 swing low to $5,359 high acted as a support. More importantly, there are two bullish trend lines formed with support near $5,320 and $5,280 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. On the downside, there are many supports near $5,280 and $5,250. If there are extended losses, the price may retest the $5,200 support. The 100 hourly SMA is also close to $5,200 to hold losses.
On the upside, a clear break above the $5,360 level may open the gates for a push towards the $5,400 level. The next key resistance is near the $5,450 level, where sellers may appear. The current price action is positive and, therefore suggests more gains above $5,360. If there is a downside correction, the bulls are likely to protect $5,280 or $5,250.
