Bitcoin Price is Facing Hurdles

After a steady decline, bitcoin price found support just above $10,350 against the US Dollar. BTC price traded as low as $10,387 and recently started a fresh upward move.

The bears seem to have lost control, as the price was able to climb above the $10,550 resistance level. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $10,930 high to $10,387 low.

Bitcoin is now trading above the $10,650 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like there is a key rising channel forming with support near $10,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

On the upside, the first major resistance is near the $10,800 level. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $10,930 high to $10,387 low. The next major resistance is near the $10,850 level, above which the price might attempt another upside break above the $10,900 and $11,000 resistance levels.

A successful close above $10,900 and then a follow up move above $11,000 could start a strong increase in bitcoin in the coming sessions.

Fresh Drop in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to continue higher above the $10,800 resistance or the $10,900 barrier, there is a risk of a fresh drop. An initial support is near the channel lower trend line at $10,650.

The next major support is near the $10,600 level or the 100 hourly simple moving average, below which there are high chances of a fresh dive towards the $10,350 support zone.
