Bitcoin Price Analysis

After a sharp drop, bitcoin price found support near the $3,800 level against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded as low as $3,801 and later started a decent rebound. It traded above the $3,825 and $3,830 resistance levels to move into a short term positive zone. There was a break above the $3,850 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $3,911 high to $3,800 swing low. However, the upside move was capped by the $3,880 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $3,911 high to $3,800 swing low also acted as a resistance. There were a couple of failures to clear the $3,880 barrier, but buyers failed. Besides, yesterday’s highlighted important bearish trend line is in place with resistance at $3,860 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.  If there is an upside break above the trend line, $3,870, and the 100 hourly SMA, there could be more gains.
