Bitcoin Price Decline
It was a major bearish week since bitcoin price declined by more than 25% against the US Dollar. The price traded lower and broke a couple of important support levels such as $10,000 and $9,400. The current decline has opened the doors for more losses and it seems like the price may even test the $8,000 level. More importantly, during the downside, there was a break below two major bullish trend lines with support at $10,000 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
The pair is now trading well below the $9,400 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The recent low was formed at $8,413 from where an upside move was initiated. BTC price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $11,670 high to $8,413 low. However, the upside move was protected by the $9,400-9,500 levels. The stated $9,400 level was a support earlier and now it is acting as a barrier for more gains. The pair resumed its downtrend and it may soon retest the $8,400 level.
If the current pressure remains intact, there could be more losses toward $8,000. Below $8,000, the price may test $7,600.
