Bitcoin Price Resistance
It seems like Bitcoin price is finding it hard to break the $2800 resistance against the US Dollar. The price tested the stated resistance on a few occasions, but failed to break it. There was a decline towards $2050 from where the price recovered well and surged above $2500. However, the price once again struggled to break the $2750-2800 resistance and moved down.
Actually, there is a declining bearish trend line with resistance at $2680 forming on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD. It is acting as a giant resistance and preventing further gains above $2800. The 100 simple moving average (H4) is also below the trend line at $2620. So, we can say there are many hurdles on the way up for BTC near $2700 and $2800. It is once again trading lower and already breached the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $2043 low to $2774 high.
So, there are chances of further declines, and the price is likely to test the $2320 support. An intermediate support is at 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $2043 low to $2774 high at $2408. On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trend line at $2250. It means if the price dips, buyers may take a stand near $2320-2250.
