If bitcoin price breaks the trend line resistance, it could continue to recover towards the main $9,300 resistance. The 100 simple moving average (4-hours) is also waiting near the $9,300 resistance area.

Therefore, the bulls are likely to face a lot of hurdles near the $9,100 and $9,300 levels. To move into a positive zone, the price must settle above $9,300 and the 100 SMA.

More Losses in BTC?

If bitcoin struggles to clear the $9,100 and $9,300 resistance levels, there is a risk of more losses. An initial support is near the $8,813 low and $8,800.

A successful bearish break below the $8,800 support zone could open the doors for a larger decline. In the mentioned case, the bears are likely to aim a test of the $8,500 support level in the near term.
