In today’s Bitcoin price analysis, the coin is under pressure after falling from levels above $10,500. Will the downward trend continue or is a recovery imminent?
Bitcoin Price Medium-term Trend
After failing to break above the $10,500 resistance on two occasions, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) started correcting lower. The downside correction extended below the $10,400 and $10,300 support level. Moreover, this latest selloff sent BTC price reeling below the key $10,000 price level, marking the first break below this level since last Monday.
The decline opened the doors for losses as Bitcoin price dropped below the $9,900 and $9,800 support levels. It even traded close to the $9,600 level. However, at the time of writing this Bitcoin price analysis, BTC is struggling to climb above the $9,800 level.
On the upside, if more buyers emerge, the crypto’s price will rise and retest the $10,000 level. A break above the $10,000 level could see the price surge towards $10,300 and $10,500. A return above $10,500 will place Bitcoin price in the trajectory towards $11,000.
On the downside, if there is an extended downside correction, Bitcoin price might test the $9,600 support. Any further downsides might discourage the bulls and the price could dip towards the $9,300 and $9,000 support level.
Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal.
BTCUSD Price Short-term Trend
On the 1-hour chart, the price of BTCUSD is bullish. However, the pair is facing hurdles near the $9,900 and $10,000 levels. More importantly, there is a short term declining channel forming with resistance near $9,900 on the chart. A successful break above the $9,900 level is needed for a fresh increase towards $10,000 in the short term.
On the other hand, if BTCUSD slides below the $9,600 support, the bears could even aim a break below the key $9,500 support level. A break below the $9,500 level is likely to set the momentum for a run towards the $9,000 level in the short term.
Meanwhile, the MACD line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.
- Resistance Levels: $10,300, $10,500, $11,000
- Support levels: $9,700, $9,300, $9,000
