Bitcoin Price is Retreating Lower

Yesterday, we saw a decent increase in bitcoin price above $10,800 and discussed the importance of the $11,000 resistance against the US Dollar. BTC did fail to gain strength and it remained well below the $11,000 resistance.

As a result, there was a bearish reaction and the price declined below the $10,800 support level. There was a clear break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,600 swing low to $10,945 high.

The price is now trading below the $10,750 level, the 100 hourly simple moving average, and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,600 swing low to $10,945 high. It seems like the $10,650 level is currently acting as a support.

There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $10,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is a downside break below the trend line support, the price could revisit the $10,550 support zone.

On the upside, the price is likely to face sellers near the $10,800 level. The main hurdle for the bulls is near the $11,000. A successful close above the $11,000 resistance is must for a sustained upward move in the near term.

Downsides Break in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to recover above the $10,800 resistance, there is a risk of a downside break. The first key support is near the $10,650 level.

The main support zone is forming near the $10,550 and $10,500 levels. A clear break below $10,500 is likely to start a sharp decline and the price could even test the $10,000 area.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is now gaining pace in the bearish zone.
