The bulls are now protecting the $15,800 support level. The next key support is near the $15,690 level or the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $15,442 swing low to $16,493 high.

If there is a clear break below the $15,690 level, the price could continue to move down towards the $15,250 and $15,200 support levels. The price must stay above the $15,000 support zone to avoid a larger decline towards the $14,500 level.

Fresh Increase in BTC?

If bitcoin stays above the $15,690 and $15,200 support levels, there are chances of a fresh increase. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $16,200 level.

The next major resistance is near the $16,450 and $16,500 levels. A clear break above the $16,500 level may perhaps open the doors for a larger increase towards the $17,000 level.
