Bitcoin price is back in a bearish zone below $10,250 against the US Dollar. BTC is likely to extend its decline if it fails to recover above $10,250 and $10,400.
Bitcoin Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a fresh decrease in BTC below the $10,250 support against the US Dollar. It opened the doors for more losses and the price declined below the $10,100 and $10,000 support levels. Moreover, there was a close below the $10,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The decline was such that the price broke the $9,800 support and tested the $9,750 level.
A swing low was formed near $9,757 and the price is currently correcting higher. It is testing the $10,000 resistance plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,836 high to $9,757 low. However, there are many resistances on the upside near $10,100 and $10,200 levels. Additionally, there is a declining channel forming with resistance near $10,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
If there is an upside break above the channel resistance, the price could correct higher towards the $10,250 and $10,300 resistance levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,836 high to $9,757 low is also near the $10,296 level to act as a strong resistance. Therefore, an upside correction towards $10,100 or $10,250 is likely to face a strong resistance.
If the price fails to correct above the $10,100 resistance or the $10,250 barrier, it could resume its decline. An immediate support is near the $9,750 level, below which the bears are likely to target the $9,500 support area. Moreover, an intermediate support is near the $9,620 level.
