2 min read

Bitcoin price started a downside correction from the $54,900 zone against the US Dollar. BTC is now consolidating and it could start a fresh increase if it clears $54,900

  • Bitcoin is showing positive signs above the $62,500 and $62,000 levels.
  • The price is now trading well above the $62,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $63,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is likely to start a fresh rally if it clears the main $64,000 resistance zone.

Bitcoin Price is Holding Gains

Bitcoin traded to a new all-time high at $64,892 before starting a downside correction. BTC corrected below the $64,000 and $63,500 support levels.

There was a spike below the $62,000 support, but the 100 hourly simple moving average acted as a support. The price is now trading well above the $62,000 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It recovered above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $64,892 swing high to $61,292 low.

However, the bulls are now facing resistance near the $63,500 zone. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $63,700 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The triangle resistance is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $64,892 swing high to $61,292 low. A successful break above the triangle resistance could spark an upside break above the $64,000 level. In the stated case, the price could rally towards the $65,000 level. Any more gains might call for a move towards the $66,500 and $66,800 levels in the near term.

Dips Supported in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to climb above $63,700 and $64,000, there could be another downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $62,500 level.

The main support is now forming near the $62,000 level and the triangle trend line. A downside break below the triangle trend line support might lead the price further lower towards the key $61,120 support zone in the near term.
