Bitcoin Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a solid upward move above $9,500 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair remained in a positive zone and recently rallied above the main $10,000 resistance. There was even a close above the $10,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A new 2019 high was formed above $10,800 and the price traded close to the $11,000 level.
The recent rise was convincing since there was a strong follow through above $10,000. The bulls are currently in action despite the recent downside correction. It broke the $10,700 support plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $9,853 low to $10,903 high. However, the decline was protected by the $10,400 support area.
It seems like the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $9,853 low to $10,903 high acted as a strong support. Moreover, there is a key bullish trend line forming with support near $10,200 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is currently moving higher and is trading above the $10,600 level. On the upside, an immediate hurdle is near the $10,800 level, above which the price could trade towards the $11,000 level.
