Bitcoin Price Rallies 5%

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of a larger rally in bitcoin price above $9,750 against the US Dollar. BTC did gain traction above the $9,750 resistance and rallied more than 5%.

It broke many key hurdles near $9,950 and $10,000 to move into a positive zone. A new weekly high is formed near $10,371 and the price is now trading well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Bitcoin is currently correcting lower from $10,371 and trading below $10,200. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $9,378 low to $10,371 high. However, there are many supports on the downside, starting with $10,000.

The first major support is near the $9,950 (the previous major resistance). The next support is near the $9,875 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $9,378 low to $10,371 high.

There is also key connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $9,740 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. On the upside, the recent high near $10,371 is a short term resistance zone.
