It dipped below the 100 simple moving average (2-hours) and the $6,400 level. However, buyers protected losses near an important bullish trend line with current support at $6,365 on the same chart.

The price bounced back sharply within the range and retested the $6,448 resistance area, which is the 23.6% Fib level. Above the $6,448 resistance, the main resistance for buyers is near the range at $6,490.

Therefore, a convincing close above the range resistance at $6,490, followed by a break above $6,500 is needed for an upside acceleration in the near term. The next resistance could be $6,554 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the downside move from the $6,755 high to $6,354 low.

On the downside, the trend line support holds the key near $6,365, below which the price could drop towards the range support at $6,355. It seems like the price is likely to climb higher in the near term as long as buyers continue to protect the trend line and the $6,355 support.

On the flip side, a downside break below the $6,355 support could push bitcoin price back towards the $6,260 and $6,250 support levels.
