Bitcoin Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a nice upward move in BTC above the $8,200 resistance area against the US Dollar. The price even settled above the $8,200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the price climbed above the $8,300 level and finally tested the $8,350 area. A high was formed near $8,348 and recently the price started a downside correction.
There was a break below the $8,200 support area. Additionally, the price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $7,770 low to $8,348 high. On the downside, there are a few key supports near the $8,100, $8,050 and $8,000 levels. An intermediate support is near the $8,080 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $7,770 low to $8,348 high is near the $8,060 level.
Therefore, dips remain well supported on the downside near the $8,050 level. At the moment, there is a short term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $8,160 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If bitcoin breaks the $8,160 resistance, there are chances of a fresh increase above the $8,200 and $8,300 levels. Finally, a clear break above $8,350 might push the price towards the key $8,500 resistance.
On the other hand, a downside break below $8,050 and the 100 hourly SMA might increase bearish pressure. The next key support is near $8,000 or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $7,770 low to $8,348 high. Should there be a downside break below $8,000, the price could continue to move down.
