Bitcoin Price Analysis

In the last analysis, we discussed that bitcoin price could be eyeing a short-term reversal above the $3,350 resistance against the US Dollar. BTC/USD did move higher and broke the $3,350 and the $3,585 barrier to move into a bullish zone.

The 2-hours chart indicates that the price started a solid bullish move from the $3,154 low and climbed above the $3,350 pivot area. There was a break above a key bearish trend line and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3,669 high to $3,154 low.

More importantly, the price settled above the $3,585 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (2-hours). It opened the doors for more gains and the price climbed above the $3,669 high.

At the outset, the price is trading near the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last drop from the $3,669 high to $3,154 low. It seems like the price may continue to move higher towards the $3,988 level, which is the 1.618 Fib extension level of the same drop.

If there is a downside correction, the price might find bids near a steep bullish trend line with support at $3,700 on the same chart. A break below the trend line support may kick start an extended downside correction towards the $3,585 level, which was a resistance earlier and now it could hold losses.

Overall, bitcoin price jumped into a bullish zone above $3,700 with a lot of strength. However, BTC must surpass the $3,988 and $4,000 resistance levels to extend gains and remain in a nice uptrend in the coming days.
