Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, there was a sharp decline in BTC below the $ 10,000 support against the US Dollar. The price even traded below $ 9,800 and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, the previous support area near $ 9,750 acted as a support and prevented additional weakness. As a result, there was an upside correction initiated above the $ 10,000 resistance area.

Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the main drop from the $ 10,976 high to $ 9,757 low. The price is now trading near the $ 10,200 resistance level. On the upside, there are many resistances near $ 10,250 and $ 10,300 levels. Additionally, there is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $ 10,450 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the main drop from the $ 10,976 high to $ 9,757 low is also waiting near the $ 10,370 level. Finally, the 100 hourly SMA is close to $ 10,380 to act as a hurdle for the bulls. Therefore, an upside correction towards the $ 10,250, $ 10,300 and $ 10,350 levels could face a strong selling interest in the near term. If there is no upside break, bitcoin is likely to resume its decline below the $ 10,000 support.

An immediate support is near the $ 9,920 level, below which the price is likely to revisit the $ 9,750 support area. Any further decline may perhaps push the price towards the $ 9,500 support level in the coming sessions.

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price seems to be correcting higher towards the main barrier near the $ 10,300 and $ 10,400 levels.
