In today’s Bitcoin price analysis, the coin rose steadily to the $10,200 resistance level before correcting lower. However, a rally towards the $10,500 level is likely.
Bitcoin Price Medium-term Trend
Last week, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) was trading in a bullish trend zone. Moreover, there was a steady increase in Bitcoin price above the $9,500 and $9,800 resistance levels. BTC even climbed above the $10,000 level and finally, a new 2020 high was formed near $10,200.
However, after meeting resistance at the $10,200 level, Bitcoin price started a downside correction. The coin broke the $10,100, $10,000 and even dipped below $9,850. It traded close to the $9,650 support and at the time of writing this Bitcoin price analysis, BTC is climbing higher at $9,818.
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 $10,200 and $10,500. Conversely, if there is an extended downside correction, Bitcoin price might test the $9,650 support. Any further downsides might discourage the bulls and the price could dip towards the $9,500 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 in a bullish trend. However, we cannot rule out price pullbacks. That said, a short term correction towards $9,700 could be considered as a decent buying opportunity. Besides, only a break below the $9,500 level might start a substantial downside correction.
Meanwhile, the MACD line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal.
- Resistance Levels: $9,800, $10,000, $10,200
- Support levels: $9,800, $9,500, $9,200
