Bitcoin Holding Strong At $11K, But 100 SMA Holds The Key To Start Fresh Rally

Bitcoin crashed more than $1,500 from the $12,115 high against the US Dollar. BTC is currently consolidating above $11,000 and it must surpass the 100 hourly SMA for a fresh rally.

  • Bitcoin is holding a couple of important supports near the $11,000 and $10,850 levels.
  • The price seems to be facing a strong resistance near the 100 hourly SMA and $11,450.
  • There is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $11,200 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair must clear the 100 hourly SMA and $11,450 to start a fresh rally.

Bitcoin Price is Consolidating Losses

There was a strong increase in bitcoin price above the $11,000 and $11,500 levels against the US Dollar. BTC even broke the $12,000 level and traded to a new multi-month high above $12,100.

A high was formed near $12,115 high before the price crashed more than $1,500. It broke many key supports near $11,500 and $11,000. There was a spike below the $10,850 support, but the price stayed above the main $10,500 support zone.

A low is formed near $10,591 and the price is currently correcting higher. There was a break above the $11,000 resistance, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $12,115 high to $10,591 low.

However, the price seems to be struggling to clear the $11,200 and $11,250 resistance levels. The 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $11,300 level to prevent an upside break. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $11,200 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

The pair must clear the triangle resistance and the 100 hourly SMA to start a fresh increase. The next major resistance is near the $11,450 and $11,500 levels. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $12,115 high to $10,591 low.

A successful close above the $11,500 level will most likely push the price back into a bullish zone. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to climb back towards the $12,000 resistance.

Fresh Decline in BTC?

The main support is near the $10,600 and $10,500 levels, below which the bears are likely to aim a larger decline (may be towards $10,000).
