Bitcoin Price Analysis
Recently, bitcoin price struggled to clear the $10,000 level and topped near the $10,030 level against the US Dollar. As a result, there was a sharp decline and BTC declined below the $9,500 and $9,400 levels.
Moreover, there was a close below the $9,500 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It opened the doors for more losses below $9,300 and $9,200. The price traded as low as $9,104 and it is currently showing many bearish signs.
If bitcoin starts a recovery, an initial resistance is near the $9,300 area. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downside reaction from the $10,029 high to $9,104 low is also near the $9,325 level.
The next major resistance is near the $9,565 level since it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downside reaction from the $10,029 high to $9,104 low. More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $9,780 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
Therefore, upsides are likely to remain capped on the upside near the $9,500 and $9,565 levels. A convincing close above the $9,565 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is needed for more gains in the near term.
