Bitcoin Price Analysis

After trading as low as $6,202, bitcoin price found strong bids against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair started an upside move and climbed above a few key resistances like $6,280 and $6,300. The price cleared the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $6,530 swing high to $6,202 low. It opened the doors for more gains and the price spiked towards the $6,390 and $6,400 resistances.

There was a test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $6,530 swing high to $6,202 low. BTC buyers failed to clear the $6,390 and $6,400 resistances. However, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at $6,340 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If the recent upside break is true, there could be more gains towards the $6,400 and $6,410 levels. The 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $6,410 level to act as a resistance. Therefore, a proper close above the $6,400 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA is needed for more upsides.
