Bitcoin Price Could Extend Losses

After a sharp decline, bitcoin price started an upside correction from the $9,100 support against the US Dollar. BTC managed to stay above the $9,000 handle and recovered above the $9,300 resistance level.

There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $10,000 swing high to $9,090 low. It even moved above the $9,500 level, but failed to surpass the $9,540 resistance level.

It seems like the price failed to clear the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $10,000 swing high to $9,090 low. Bitcoin is currently declining and trading well below the $9,500 and $9,400 levels.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $9,400 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The current price action suggests that the pair could continue to move down towards the $9,100 support zone in the near term.

Bitcoin Price

If the bears remain in action in the coming sessions, there are chances of more losses below the $9,090 swing low. The next major support is near the $9,000 level, below which the price could revisit the $8,800 support level.

Chances of a Fresh Recovery in BTC

On the upside, bitcoin price is facing a lot of hurdles near $9,300 and $9,400. Besides, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $9,500 level.
