Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the past two days, there bearish sharp bearish moves in bitcoin price below $10,000 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the $9,800 and $9,500 support levels to enter a bearish zone. Moreover, the pair spiked below the $9,300 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the price traded close to the $9,100 level and formed a new weekly low at $9,118 before correcting higher.

The upward move was positive as the price climbed above the $9,500 level. However, the price is now facing a strong resistance near the $9,700 level. More importantly, there is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $9,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The next key resistance is near the $9,800 level, above which the price could stage a decent recovery towards the $10,200 resistance or $10,400.

Conversely, if there is no upside break above $9,700 or $9,800, the price could start a fresh decrease. An immediate support is near the $9,500 level and the triangle support. A clear break below $9,500 might call for a solid drop towards the $9,000 handle in the near term.
