Bitcoin Gold Price Resistance

After a decent upside move above the $320 level, bitcoin gold price faced sellers against the US Dollar. The price started a downside move and traded below a couple of important support levels such as $300 and $280. The decline was such that there was an hourly close below the $300 handle and the 100 simple moving average. A low was formed at $268.87 recently and the price is currently consolidating in a range.

On the upside, an initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $339 high to $268 low. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $285 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD. The trend line is positioned just below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $339 high to $268 low. Moreover, the 100 hourly SMA is at $300 to act as a major barrier for buyers.
