The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $9,525 swing low to $9,748 high. On the upside, the price is facing a couple of strong hurdles near the $9,750 level.

If there is a successful break above the $9,750 and $9,800 resistance levels, the price is likely to continue higher. The next major resistance is near the $10,000 and $10,200 levels. Any further gains could lead the price towards the $10,500 level.

Downside Break in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to stay above the main $9,650 support, it could extend its downside correction. The next major support is near the $9,500 pivot level.

A downside break below the $9,500 support level may perhaps spark a strong decline. In the mentioned case, the price might slide towards the $9,300 support zone.
