In today’s Bitcoin price analysis, the coin surged towards the $9,650 level before correcting lower. BTC traded close to the $9,100 level and it is currently correcting higher.
Bitcoin Price Medium-Term Trend
After breaking above the $9,500 level, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) extended its upward move above the $9,600 level. Finally, the bulls pushed Bitcoin price to form a new 2020 high at $9,620 before the bears gained control of the market. As a result, there was a downside correction below the $9,500, $9,400 and $9,200 support level.
However, the $9,100 level acted and still acting as a strong support. At the time of writing this Bitcoin price analysis, the coin is correcting higher and trading above the $9,200 level.
On the upside, if more buyers emerge, the crypto’s price will face resistance at the $9,300 area and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). A break above the $9,300 level could see the price surge towards $9,600 and $9,800.
Conversely, if there is an extended downside correction below $9,200, Bitcoin price might retest the $9,100 support. Any further downsides might discourage the bulls and the price could dip towards the $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.
