Bitcoin Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a minor downside correction in BTC below the $8,200 support area against the US Dollar. We also discussed a possible bounce as long as the price holds the $8,000 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price did stay above $8,000 and recently started a strong upward move. It is up more than 5% and surpassed the $8,350 resistance. Moreover, there was a break above the key $8,500 resistance area.
A new weekly high was formed near $8,691 and the price is currently consolidating gains. It corrected below the $8,600 level. However, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $8124 low to $8,691 high is acting as a decent support. Additionally, there is a short term breakout pattern forming with support near $8,540 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
If there is a downside break below the $8,540 and $8,500 support levels, the price could extend its correction. The next key support is near the $8,400 level. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $8124 low to $8,691 high is also near the $8,407 level. If there are any additional losses, the price may perhaps test the $8,350 support area (the recent key resistance).
The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $8124 low to $8,691 high is also near the $8,340 level to provide support. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $8,620 level. If there is an upside break above $8,620 and $8,650, the price is likely to accelerate towards the $8,800 level.
