Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw strong gains in BTC above the $10,500 resistance area against the US Dollar. The price traded close the $10,800 level and later corrected lower below $10,700. Moreover, there was a break below the $10,550 level, but the $10,400 level acted as a strong support area. As a result, the price climbed higher and broke the last swing high near $10,790. A new monthly high was formed near $10,888 and recently the price corrected lower.

It traded below the $10,600 level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,321 low to $10,888 high. However, the decline was protected by the $10,500 support area. Additionally, yesterday’s highlighted key bullish trend line is providing support near $10,510 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $10,321 low to $10,888 high also protected downsides.

At the moment, the price is trading with a positive angle above the $10,600 level. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $10,700 and $10,800 levels. If there is a successful close above $10,800, the price is likely to accelerate higher above the $10,880 and $10,900 levels. The next key resistance is near the $11,000 level. If there are more gains, the price could test the $11,200 resistance area.

Conversely, if the price fails to break the $10,700 and $10,800 resistance levels, it could correct lower. An initial support is near the $10,500 level. However, the main support is near the $10,400 level, below which the price could extend its decline towards the $10,200 support and the 100 hourly SMA.
