Bitcoin Gold Price Resistance

There was a downside reaction in bitcoin gold price recently toward the $210 support area against the US Dollar. The price traded as low as $210.08 and later started an upside correction. It succeeded in moving back above the $220 level. Moreover, there was a break of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $273 high to $210 low.

However, the upside move faced sellers near $260. There was no close above the $260 level and the price failed to gain pace. There was also a rejection from the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $273 high to $210 low. Sellers defended the 100 hourly simple moving average near $245 and as a result, there was no upside break.
