Do or Die for Bitcoin Bulls: Here’s A Crucial Breakout Zone For A Sharp Recovery
Bitcoin managed to stay above the $ 9,350 support area against the US Dollar. BTC price is currently recovering, but it must surpass $ 9,825 for a strong upward move. Bitcoin price is currently correcting higher from the $ 9,350 support area against the US Dollar. There is a strong resistance waiting on the upside near the $ 9,825 level. Recently, there was a break above a contracting triangle with resistance near $ 9,665 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken). The pair could either rally above $ 9,825 or it might start a fresh decline back to $ 9,350. Bitcoin Approaching Key Resistance After a close below the $ 9,500 level, bitcoin price extended its decline below $ 9,400 against the US Dollar. However, BTC remained stable above the $ 9,340 and $ 9,350 levels. A swing low is formed near $ 9,344 and the price is currently recovering. It surpassed the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $ 10,300 high to $ 9,344 low. Moreover, there was a break above a contracting triangle with resistance near $ 9,665 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is now trading nicely above the $ 9,700 level, but there are many key hurdles waiting on the upside. Bitcoin Price The first resistance for bitcoin is near the $ 9,825 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It is also close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $ 10,300 high to $ 9,344 low. Therefore, a clear break above the $ 9,825 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA could set the pace for a larger upward move in the near term. The next major resistance is near $ 10,060, above which the price is likely to aim a break above the $ 10,300 swing high. Any further gains could lead the price towards the $ 10,500 resistance. Another Failure? If BTC fails to continue above the $ 9,825 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA, there could be another decline. An initial support is near the $ 9,620 level. The first key support is near the $ 9,500 level, below which bitcoin could revisit the $ 9,350 support area. If the bears are able to clear the $ 9,350 support, the next stop for them may perhaps be near the $ 9,050 level.
