Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

This past week, there were mostly bearish moves in bitcoin price below the $ 10,400 pivot level against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair attempted an upside correction above the $ 10,000 level, but the $ 10,200 level acted as a strong resistance. Moreover, there were two attempts this past week to clear the $ 10,200 resistance, but the bulls failed to gain momentum. As a result, there was a break below $ 10,000 and the price settled well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

The price recently traded below the $ 9,500 support and formed a new swing low near $ 9,269. It is currently consolidating losses, with an immediate resistance near the $ 9,700 level. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $ 11,092 high to $ 9,269 low is also near the $ 9,730 level to act as a resistance. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $ 10,350 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The trend line coincides with the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $ 11,092 high to $ 9,269 low. Therefore, it won’t be easy for the bulls to push the price above the $ 10,200 and $ 10,400 resistance levels. Above $ 10,400, the price could recover towards the $ 11,000 resistance level.

On the downside, there are a few supports near the $ 9,200 and $ 9,100 levels. If the price continues to struggle below the $ 10,000 and $ 10,200 levels, there is a risk of a sharp decline. The main support is near $ 9,000, below which the price could tumble towards the $ 8,450 level.

Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly trading with a bearish bias below the $ 10,000 and $ 10,200 resistance levels. Until there is a daily close above $ 10,400, there are chances of more downsides below $ 9,000.
