Bitcoin Price Analysis

This past week, there was a significant decline in bitcoin price below the $5,000 support against the US Dollar. BTC even declined below the $4,400 support and settled well below the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

The decline was such that the price spiked below the $4,000 level. A new 2020 low is formed near the $3,860 level and the price recently started an upside correction. It managed to recover above the $4,200 and $4,450 levels.

Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $8,024 high to $3,860 low. However, the price seems to be facing a lot of hurdles on the upside, starting with $5,650.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $5,520 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Above the trend line and $5,650, the main hurdle for the bulls is near the $5,965 resistance.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $8,024 high to $3,860 low is also near the $5,940 level to act as a resistance. The last key hurdle is near the $6,250 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

A successful close above the $5,965 and $6,250 levels is needed for the bulls to take control in the near term. Conversely, the price might fail to continue above the $5,650 and $5,965 resistance levels.

In the mentioned case, it could resume its decline below the $5,000 support level. The main support is near the $4,450 level, below which the price is likely to test the $4,000 support.
