Bitcoin Price is Consolidating Losses

There was a strong increase in bitcoin price above the $ 11,000 and $ 11,500 levels against the US Dollar. BTC even broke the $ 12,000 level and traded to a new multi-month high above $ 12,100.

A high was formed near $ 12,115 high before the price crashed more than $ 1,500. It broke many key supports near $ 11,500 and $ 11,000. There was a spike below the $ 10,850 support, but the price stayed above the main $ 10,500 support zone.

A low is formed near $ 10,591 and the price is currently correcting higher. There was a break above the $ 11,000 resistance, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $ 12,115 high to $ 10,591 low.

However, the price seems to be struggling to clear the $ 11,200 and $ 11,250 resistance levels. The 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $ 11,300 level to prevent an upside break. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $ 11,200 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The pair must clear the triangle resistance and the 100 hourly SMA to start a fresh increase. The next major resistance is near the $ 11,450 and $ 11,500 levels. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $ 12,115 high to $ 10,591 low.

A successful close above the $ 11,500 level will most likely push the price back into a bullish zone. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to climb back towards the $ 12,000 resistance.
