Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, bitcoin price formed a support base near $8,900 and started a fresh increase against the US Dollar. BTC gained bullish momentum above the $9,100 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $9,090 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. It opened the doors for more gains above $9,200 and $9,300.

The pair surpassed the $9,320 level, but it seems to be struggling near the $9,350 and $9,380 levels (a multi-touch zone). A high is formed near $9,381 and the price is currently consolidating gains. It is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $8,909 low to $9,381 high.

On the downside, there are many supports near the $9,150 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $8,909 low to $9,381 high is also likely to act as a strong support near the $9,145 level.

If bitcoin fails to stay above the $9,145 level, there is a risk of a fresh decline towards the $9,000 and $8,900 levels in the near term.

Conversely, the price could break the $9,350 and $9,380 resistance levels. A successful close and follow through above $9,350 may perhaps open the doors for a larger upward move towards the $9,500 and $9,580 levels.
