Bitcoin Price Analysis

After a major decline below the $4,000 support, bitcoin price found support near $3,625 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair started an upside correction and traded above the $3,700 and $3,750 resistance levels. There was a push above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $4,188 high to $3,625 low. It opened the doors for a larger recovery above the $3,800 level. However, the price struggled to break the key $3,860 resistance and later the price started consolidating gains.

To the downside, the $3,750 level acted as a decent support. The price formed a support base and later moved above $3,780. Recently, there was a break above a short term contracting triangle with resistance at $3,795 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is slowly moving higher and it seems like it could retest the key $3,860 resistance level. However, the main resistance is near the $3,880 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Above the 100 hourly SMA, the price could test the $3,900 pivot level.

Finally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last downside move from the $4,188 high to $3,625 low is just above $3,900. Therefore, it seems like there are many resistances formed near the $3,860, $3,880 and $3,900 levels. To start a decent upward move, a close above the $3,880 level and the 100 hourly SMA is very important.
