Bitcoin Price Analysis

After a strong upward move, bitcoin price started a downside correction from the $ 5,640 swing high against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded below the $ 5,600 and $ 5,520 levels to move into a short term bearish zone. The pair even broke the $ 5,480 support and settled below the key $ 5,450 support level. Recently, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $ 5,199 low to $ 5,644 high.

The price spiked below the $ 5,400 support and traded close to the $ 5,370 level. Besides, the price traded close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $ 5,199 low to $ 5,644 high. At the moment, the price is consolidating above the $ 5,400 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is also a key bullish trend line formed with support at $ 5,405 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Clearly, the price is trading near a strong support at $ 5,400. If there is a downside break below $ 5,400 and the 100 hourly SMA, the price could extend losses.

The next key support area is near $ 5,350-5,340 (the previous major resistance). The bulls are likely to defend the $ 5,340 support area in the near term. On the upside, the price must break the $ 5,450 resistance to start a decent rebound. However, the main resistance is at $ 5,500, above which the price could move back towards the $ 5,640 level.
