Bitcoin Price Analysis

After trading above the $3,700 resistance, bitcoin price started a downside correction against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair topped at $3,745 and later corrected below $3,700 and $3,640. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $3,340 swing low to $3,745 high. More importantly, there was a break below the $3,600 and $3,580 support levels. The price traded close to the $3,550 support area, where buyers emerged.

There was a complete test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $3,340 swing low to $3,745 high. Besides, the 100 hourly simple moving average acted as a strong support and prevented additional losses below $3,540. The price bounced back, but the previous supports at $3,580 and $3,600 are acting as resistances. More importantly, there is a contracting triangle forming with resistance near $3,625 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. A successful break above the $3,600 and $3,620 resistances could set the pace for more gains in the near term. The next key resistances are $3,700 and $3,750. On the other hand, a close below $3,550 might open the doors for a drop to $3,500 or $3,440.

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is likely preparing for the next break either above $3,625 or below $3,550. It seems like buyers could gain control as long as the price is above $3,550 and the 100 hourly SMA.
