Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis

Bitcoin price found support near the $19,500 zone and started a fresh increase. BTC/USD broke the $22,000 resistance zone to move into a positive region.

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the price even cleared a major key trend line at $22,200. It opened the doors for a move above the $24,000 resistance zone, the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours), and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).

The price traded to a new monthly high at $26,510 and recently corrected gains. There was a move below the $25,000 support zone.

On the downside, an initial support sits near the $24,000 level. The main breakdown support sits near the $23,000 zone, the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours), and the 200 simple moving average (green, 4-hours).

If there is a downside break and close below $23,000, bitcoin might start another decline in the coming days. In the stated case, it could revisit the $22,000 support or even test $21,200.

On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $25,300 resistance zone. A close above the $25,300 level may perhaps start another steady increase in the coming sessions.

In the stated case, the price could rise towards the $26,250 level. Any more gains could set the pace for a move towards the $27,000 level.
