Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw an extended rally in bitcoin price above the $8,000 barrier against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the $8,200 and $8,300 resistance levels. It traded close to the $8,340 level and a new 2019 high was formed at $8,338. Later, the price started a downside correction below the $8,200 support, but remained well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price declined below the $8,000 support level and traded close to the key $7,600 support area. A swing low was formed at $7,631 and the price recovered recently above $8,000.

There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,338 high to $7,631 low. However, the price seems to be facing a strong resistance near $8,150. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,338 high to $7,631 low is also preventing an upside break. Moreover, there is a short term bearish trend line forming with resistance near $8,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, the pair needs to clear the trend line and $8,150 to start a fresh increase.

On the upside, an immediate resistance above $8,150 is at $8,220. The next key resistance is near the $8,340 level, above which the price could test the $8,500 level. The 1.236 Fib extension level of the recent decline from the $8,338 high to $7,631 low is also near the $8,505 level.

However, there are many support on the downside near the $7,580 and $7,600 levels. Besides, this weeks followed important bullish trend line is intact with support at $7,580. As long as the price is above the trend line support, it is likely to break $8,150 and $8,340.
