Bitcoin Price is Facing Hurdles

There was an increase in selling pressure on bitcoin price from the $15,850 zone. BTC declined over $500 and it even spiked below the $15,000 support. A low was formed near $14,815 before the price started a fresh increase.

There was a break above the $15,100 level, plus the price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $15,850 high to $14,815 swing low. However, the price seems to be facing a strong resistance near the $15,450 and $15,500 levels.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $15,850 high to $14,815 swing low is also acting as a hurdle for the bulls. It is currently trading below $15,400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Another Downside Correction in BTC?
