  • Bitcoin failed to hold gains and started a fresh decline from the $10,800 resistance level.
  • The price broke the $10,650 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • This week’s important ascending channel was breached with support near $10,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

Bitcoin Price Resumes Decline

Bitcoin price failed to clear the key $10,800 resistance and started a fresh decline against the US Dollar. BTC traded as high as $10,803 before the bulls lost control.

As a result, there was a bearish reaction below the $10,750 and $10,700 levels. The decline gained pace after this week’s important ascending channel was breached with support near $10,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Bitcoin traded below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,387 swing low to $10,803 swing high. The price is now trading well below the $10,650 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

It is currently holding the $10,550 support, but it remains at a risk of more losses. The $10,550 support is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,387 swing low to $10,803 swing high.

If there is a downside break below the $10,550 support level, the bears are likely to aim a test of the $10,387 swing low. Any further losses might lead the price towards the $10,250 support or even $10,000 in the near term.
