Bitcoin Price Analysis (Daily Chart)
At the end of the October 2019, bitcoin started a sharp increase from the $7,283 low against the US Dollar. BTC surged above the $8,000 and $9,100 resistance levels. Moreover, there was a nasty spike above the $10,000 resistance area.
However, the price failed to settle above the $10,000 resistance and the 100-day simple moving average. A high was formed near $10,576 before the price started a fresh decline.
This month, the price lost almost all its gains and traded below the key $9,100 pivot level. Besides, the price broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the October’s rally from the $7,283 low to $10,576 high.
It is now trading well below the $8,500 support and the 100-day simple moving average. An immediate support is near the $8,060 level since it coincides with the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the October’s rally from the $7,283 low to $10,576 high.
If there is a downside break below the $8,060 and $8,000 support levels, bitcoin is likely to slide towards the $7,400 support area or the $7,283 low. In such cases, the price mostly breaks the last swing low ($7,283).
In the mentioned case, the price may perhaps test the $6,500 support. It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the October’s rally from the $7,283 low to $10,576 high.
On the upside, there are many resistances for the bulls, starting with $8,500. Additionally, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $8,880 on the daily chart of the BTC/USD pair.
Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly following a nasty downtrend on the daily chart below $8,500 and $8,700. It is likely to test $7,400 or even $6,500 unless there is a daily close above the $8,880 resistance.
