Bitcoin Price Analysis
After consolidating for a few days above the $6,350 support, Bitcoin price finally made the next move against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair was rejected near the $6,435 level, which sparked a downside move. The price declined sharply and broke the $6,400 and $6,350 support levels. The decline was such that the price even settled below the $6,300 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
During the decline, there was a break below a major contracting triangle with support at $6,405 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair traded close to the $6,200 support and formed a low at $6,201. Later, there was an upside correction above the $6,240 level. The price also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6,434 high to $6,201 low. However, there are many hurdles for buyers near the $6,280 and $6,300 levels. More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6,434 high to $6,201 low is at $6,318.
