Bitcoin Price Analysis
This past week, bitcoin price started a steady decline from well above the $12,000 level against the US Dollar. BTC broke many key supports near $11,800 to move into a bearish zone.
There was also a close below the $11,500 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It even broke the $11,250 level and traded to a new weekly low at $11,101. It is currently correcting higher and trading above the $11,220 level.
Bitcoin price is now facing hurdles near the $11,420 and $11,500 levels. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $11,600 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
The trend line is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $12,488 high to $11,101 low. If there is an upside break above the trend line resistance, the price could revisit the $11,800 resistance.
The 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is a major hurdle for the bulls near the $11,800 level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $12,488 high to $11,101 low is also near the $11,794 level. Therefore, the price must surpass the $11,800 resistance to move into a bullish zone.
Conversely, there is a risk of more downsides below the $11,200 and $11,100 levels. The next support is near the $11,000 level, below which the bears are likely to aim a test of the $10,750 level.
