  • The price is now trading well below $10,750 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
  • There is a key connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $10,330 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

Bitcoin Turns Red

This past week, bitcoin made another attempt to surpass the $10,950 and $11,000 resistance levels against the US Dollar. However, the bulls failed to gain strength, resulting in a sharp decline from the $10,940 swing high.

The price broke many important supports near $10,800 and $10,750 to move into a short-term bearish zone. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,138 swing low to $10,950 high.

Bitcoin is now trading well below $10,750 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The first major support on the downside is near the $10,350 zone. There is also a key connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $10,330 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The trend line is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $10,138 swing low to $10,950 high. If there is a downside break below the trend line support and $10,300, there is a risk of more losses.

The next major support is near the $10,130 level, below which the bears might even aim a larger decline below the $10,000 support level in the near term.

Upsides to be Capped in BTC?

If bitcoin starts an upside correction, it could face sellers near $10,700. The first major resistance is still near the $10,800 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

The main resistance is still near the $10,950 and $11,000 levels. A close above the $11,000 resistance is must for a sustained upward move in the coming days.
