Bitcoin Price Correcting Gains

Earlier this month, bitcoin price gained bullish momentum above the $11,00 level against the US Dollar. BTC even broke the $11,500 resistance and settled well above the 100-day simple moving average.

There was a break above the $12,000 level and the price climbed to a new monthly high near $12,100. However, it failed to stay above the $12,000 level and recently started a downside correction. The bears were able to push the price below the $11,800 level.

Bitcoin price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $9,000 swing low to $12,100 swing high. It is now trading near the $11,300 level. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $11,240 on the daily chart of the BTC/USD pair.

If the pair breaks the trend line support, there is a risk of an extended decline. The next major support is near the $11,000. The main support is near the $10,500 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $9,000 swing low to $12,100 swing high.

Fresh Increase?

If bitcoin price stays above the trend line support or $11,200, it could bounce back. An initial resistance is near the $11,500 level, above which the bulls could gain strength.

The main hurdle is still near the $12,000 barrier, above which the price is likely to start another strong rally in the coming days. In the mentioned case, it could rise towards the $12,400 and $12,500 levels.
