Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the past few days, bitcoin price started a decent recovery wave above $10,600 against the US Dollar. BTC was able to climb above the $10,700 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

However, the price struggled to clear the $10,800 resistance level. There was a sharp bearish reaction from the $10,798 high and the price declined below the $10,700 level. The price even broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,370 swing low to $10,798 high.

The price is now trading well below the $10,800 resistance and the 55 SMA (H4). On the downside, there is a strong support forming near the $10,540 level. There is also a major breakout pattern forming with support near $10,540 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,370 swing low to $10,798 high is also near the $10,540 support zone. If there is a downside break below the triangle support and $10,540, there is a risk of a larger decline.

In the stated case, the price could revisit the $10,370 swing low. The next major support could be $10,270 level since it is close to the 1.236 Fib extension level of the upward move from the $10,370 swing low to $10,798 high.

Conversely, bitcoin price might start a fresh increase above the $10,650 and $10,700 levels. To move into a positive zone, the price must gain momentum above the triangle resistance and the $10,800 level.
