July 17, 2019 @ 10:59 +03:00
This week, we saw a major decline in bitcoin price below the $10,500 support against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair found support near $9,800 and yesterday corrected higher. It climbed above the $10,500 level, but struggled to gain momentum above the $11,000 level. A top was formed near the $11,100 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. As a result, the price started a fresh decline below the $10,500 support level.
The decline was such that the price broke the $10,000 and $9,800 support levels. Moreover, the price declined close to 15% and traded as low as $9,257. It is currently consolidating above $9,300 and it might correct higher. An immediate resistance is near the $9,680 level plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $11,063 high to $9,257 low. However, the main resistance is near the $10,000 and $10,100 levels.
Moreover, there is a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $10,060 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $11,063 high to $9,257 low is also near the $10,160 level to act as a strong resistance. Therefore, an upside recovery above the $9,650 level is likely to face a strong resistance near the $10,000 and $10,100 levels. Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is struggling below $10,000 and it could continue to weaken. However, once the current correction is complete near $8,880 or $8,800, the price may stage a decent recovery.
