Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the past three days, we saw a slow and steady rise above $5,100 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the key $5,160 and $5,200 resistance levels to settle in a positive zone. There was even a close above the $5,200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Intermediately, there were a few swing moves and downside corrections, but the price remained well bid above the $5,160 level. The last swing low was near at $5,192 before the price climbed above the $5,300 level.

The price traded as high as $5,364 recently and corrected lower. It broke the $5,280 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $5,192 low to $5,364 high. However, the decline was protected near the $5,250 support and the price remained well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $5,192 low to $5,364 high also acted as a strong support. More importantly, there is a major ascending channel in place with support at $5,210 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Therefore, dips towards the $5,220 and $5,200 levels remains well supported in the short term. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $5,350 and $5,360 levels. A successful break above the $5,364 swing high is likely to open the doors for more gains above the $5,400 and $5,450 levels.

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly trading in a solid uptrend above the $5,200 support area. The bulls remain in action and there are chances of an upside break above the $5,400 resistance. On the downside, only a close below the green area at $5,160 could set the pace for more losses.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD is currently placed nicely in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTC/USD is currently correcting lower towards the 50 level.

Major Support Levels $5,200 followed by $5,160.

Major Resistance Levels $5,360, $5,400 and $5,500.
