Bitcoin Price Resistances
In the last weekly analysis, I highlighted the chances of Bitcoin price moving towards $3000 against the US Dollar. The price did break $2880 and moved towards $3000. However, there was no complete test of $3000, as the price traded as high as $2970. Sellers appeared and ignited a downside move below $2900. A correction wave started and the price fell sharply below the $2500 and $2300 supports.
However, there was no close below the $2000 support, which is a positive sign. The price traded as low as $2043, and later started an upside move. It has already breached the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $2972 high to $2043 low. Furthermore, there was a break above a bearish trend line at $2500 on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD. It is a positive sign since the price is above $2500.
Now, the price needs to break the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $2972 high to $2043 low at $2620. Furthermore, a break and close above the 100 simple moving average at $2600-20 could ignite further gains. There is also a monster ascending channel forming with support at $2260. As long as the price is an uptrend, it may test the channel resistance at
