Bitcoin Price Analysis
In the past few days, bitcoin price started a steady upward move from the $11,300 support against the US Dollar. BTC cleared the key $11,500 resistance to move back into a positive zone.
The upward move was such that the price climbed above the $11,600 resistance the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It even broke the $11,800 level and traded to a new weekly high at $12,086. It is currently correcting lower and trading below $12,000.
The price is testing the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the 11,133 low to $12,086 high. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near $11,820 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
If there is a downside break below the trend line support and $11,800, the price could correct lower towards the next key support at $11,600. It is close to the 55 simple moving average (4-hours), and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the 11,133 low to $12,086 high.
