Bitcoin Price Analysis

There was an increase in selling pressure noted below the $6,500 and $6,480 levels in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair struggled continuously to break the $6,500 and $6,520 resistance levels. As a result, there was a slight bearish reaction and the price declined below the $6,450 level. It seems like the price failed to settle above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the previous decline from the $6,828 high to $6,350 swing low.

More importantly, there is a contracting range forming with support at $6,430 and resistance near $6,490. Additionally, there is a crucial bullish trend line in place with support at $6,430 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, if the price breaks the trend line support and $6,410, it could drop towards the $6,380 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Below the 100 hourly SMA, the next key support is at $6,280 (the previous resistance). On the flip side, a break above the $6,500 and $6,520 resistance levels could push the price towards $6,590.
