Technicals Suggest Bitcoin Needs To Clear $9,800 For Hopes of a Fresh Rally | NewsBTC

Bitcoin is currently correcting higher from the $9,300 support against the US Dollar. BTC price must clear the $9,740 and $9,800 resistance levels to continue higher in the near term.

  • Bitcoin is currently showing a few positive signs above the $9,500 and $9,600 levels.
  • The price is likely to gain bullish momentum if it breaks the $9,740 and $9,800 resistance levels.
  • There is a bear flag forming with resistance near $9,740 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could resume its decline if it fails to clear the $9,740 resistance zone.

Bitcoin Price Facing Hurdles

Yesterday, we saw a sharp U-turn in bitcoin price from well above $10,000 against the US Dollar. BTC broke many key supports near $9,800 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

It even spiked below the $9,500 support and tested the $9,300 support area. A low is formed near $9,299 and the price is currently correcting higher. It is now trading above the $9,500 pivot level.

There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $10,366 high to $9,299 low. Moreover, it is trading above the $9,600 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

It seems like there is a bear flag forming with resistance near $9,740 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The channel resistance zone is close to the recent breakdown zone at $9,740. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $9,745 on the same chart.

Bitcoin Price

If bitcoin price clears the trend line resistance, it could test the next major resistance near $9,800. The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $10,366 high to $9,299 low is also near $9,832.

If the bulls manage to clear the $9,740 and $9,800 resistance levels, there are chances of a steady rise in the coming sessions. The next key resistance zone is seen near the $10,000 level.

Fresh Decline in BTC?

There are chances of another downside break in bitcoin if it struggles to clear $9,740 and the trend line resistance. On the downside, the first key support is near the flag channel at $9,600.

A clear break below the bear flag at $9,600, it could accelerate losses. An immediate support is at $9,500, below which there is a risk of more downsides towards the $9,300 level.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly moving in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is now well above the 50 level.
