Bitcoin price is now trading well below $9,600 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It tested the main uptrend support at $9,300 (the previous breakout zone) and traded as low as $9,299.

It is currently consolidating losses above the $9,300 and $9,400 support levels. An initial resistance is near the $9,550 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,366 high to $9,299 low.

It seems like there is a short term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $9,550 on the same chart. If there is an upside break above the $9,550 level, the price could face hurdles near the $9,600 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The next major resistance is near the $9,740 level. The main hurdle is now forming near the $9,800 region or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,366 high to $9,299 low.
