Bitcoin Price Range Trading

This past week, there was a nice upward move from the $5,900 swing low in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded above the $6,300 and $6,500 resistance levels. However, the price failed yet again near a significant resistance at $6,600-6,620. The stated resistance zone prevented gains above $6,650 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). As a result, the price declined and moved below the $6,500 level.

There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $5,900 low to $6,653 high. Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $6,460 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. It has opened the doors for more losses in the short term below the $6,300 support level. The next important support is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $5,900 low to $6,653 high at $6,276. Below this, the price is likely to break the $6,250 level to test the $6,188-6,200 support zone.

Looking at the chart, BTC price seems to be trading in a broad range of $6,000-6,600. Therefore, there are chances of the current wave extending towards $6,200 and $6,000 before buyers appear.
