Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a minor downside correction in BTC below the $ 8,200 support area against the US Dollar. We also discussed a possible bounce as long as the price holds the $ 8,000 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price did stay above $ 8,000 and recently started a strong upward move. It is up more than 5% and surpassed the $ 8,350 resistance. Moreover, there was a break above the key $ 8,500 resistance area.

A new weekly high was formed near $ 8,691 and the price is currently consolidating gains. It corrected below the $ 8,600 level. However, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $ 8124 low to $ 8,691 high is acting as a decent support. Additionally, there is a short term breakout pattern forming with support near $ 8,540 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

If there is a downside break below the $ 8,540 and $ 8,500 support levels, the price could extend its correction. The next key support is near the $ 8,400 level. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $ 8124 low to $ 8,691 high is also near the $ 8,407 level. If there are any additional losses, the price may perhaps test the $ 8,350 support area (the recent key resistance).

The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $ 8124 low to $ 8,691 high is also near the $ 8,340 level to provide support. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $ 8,620 level. If there is an upside break above $ 8,620 and $ 8,650, the price is likely to accelerate towards the $ 8,800 level.
