Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis

Bitcoin price started a recovery wave from the $24,750 zone. BTC/USD climbed higher above the $26,500 and $27,000 resistance levels.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, the price was able to surpass the $26,500 resistance zone and a major bearish trend line with resistance at $25,900.

There was a clear move above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $28,449 swing high to the $24,735 low. It is now trading above the 100 simple moving average (red, 4 hours) and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4 hours).

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $29,000 level. The first major resistance is near the $29,200 level (a multi-touch zone).

A successful close above the $29,200 level might spark another bullish wave. In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise toward the $30,000 level.

If not, Bitcoin might decline again and trade below the $27,500 support. The next major support is near the $27,200 level. If there is a downside break and a close below $27,200, Bitcoin might revisit the $26,000 zone in the coming days.
