Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)
This past week, there was a significant upward move in bitcoin price above the $5,380 and $5,400 resistances against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair broke the $5,500 pivot and resistance level to move into a bullish zone. The bulls gained traction, resulting in a push above the $5,600 and $5,700 resistance levels. There was a clear break above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the major drop from the $5,645 high to $4,929 swing low. The price settled well above the $5,600 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
Finally, the price broke the $5,700 level and the last swing high. A new 2019 high was formed near $5,838 before the price started a downside correction. It seems like the price faced a strong resistance near the $5,820-5,840 zone. It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the major drop from the $5,645 high to $4,929 swing low. The price corrected below the $5,700 level, but dips remain well supported (as discussed yesterday). As a result, there was a strong comeback and the price surged back above $5,700 and $5,750.
The price is still trading below the last swing high and resistance near $5,820-5,840. A convincing break above the $5,820-5,840 zone is likely to set the pace for more upsides above $6,000. The price could even break the $6,250 level and trade towards the main hurdles at $6,400 and $6,500. It won’t be easy for the bulls to clear the $6,500 level since it is a major pivot zone and previous support area. Therefore, there are high chances of a major downside correction if the price test $6,400 or $6,500.
Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly placed in a strong uptrend above $5,600. There is also a key connecting bullish trend line in place with support at $5,610 on the same chart. Therefore, dips could still be contained and the price could rally above $6,000.
