Bitcoin Price Analysis
After a strong failure near the $3,650 level, bitcoin price started a major decline against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined heavily and broke the $3,540 and $3,480 support levels. There was also a close below the $3,480 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). A new yearly low was formed at $3,339 and later the price started consolidating losses. It recovered above the $3,400 level and tested the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $3,658 high to $3,339 low.
However, there are many hurdles on the upside near the $3,480 and $3,490 levels. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $3,490 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $3,658 high to $3,339 low is near the $3,499 level. Finally, the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is placed just above the $3,500 level. Therefore, there is clearly a strong barrier formed near the $3,480 and $3,490 resistance levels. It seems like only a daily close above the $3,500 resistance could start a decent recovery. If not, there is a risk of a fresh decline below the $3,400 and $3,300 levels in the near term.
Looking at the chart, bitcoin price moved into a strong bearish zone below $3,480. Therefore, it may continue to move down towards the $3,300 or $3,200 support levels in the coming days.
