Bitcoin Price Analysis
In the past few days, bitcoin price corrected lower significantly below $12,000 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded as high as $13,850 and later corrected below the $12,000 and $11,000 levels. There was also a close below the $11,000 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

A swing low was formed at $9,673 and the price recently started a fresh increase. It broke the $10,000 and $10,500 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $13,847 high to $9,673 swing low. It is now trading nicely above the $11,000 level. However, there are a few important hurdles near the $11,500 and $11,600 levels.
Besides, there is a major declining channel in place with resistance near $11,500 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Above the channel resistance, the next hurdle could be near the $11,750 level. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $13,847 high to $9,673 swing low. Once there is a break above the $11,750 resistance, the price is likely to break the $12,000 barrier.
