Bitcoin price recovering?

BTC this week traded as low as $435 vs the US dollar, and currently making an attempt to recover the lost ground. There are a few positive signs emerging on the charts, suggesting more gains in Bitcoin moving ahead.

The price has closed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $458 high to $435 low, and it is looking set for a move towards $450.

However, there is a major resistance area formed near the stated level due to many reasons. First, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $458 high to $435 low in near it. Second, the 100 simple moving average on 4-hours chart (data feed via Bitstamp) is positioned with the broken trend line support area.

So, if the price continues to move higher, then the $450 level may act as a major barrier for the BTC buyers. Only a successful close above the stated level may call for more upsides in BTC/USD in the short term.

On the downside, an initial support is at $440. However, the most important support is around the last swing low of $435. The 4-hours RSI is now above the 50 level, suggesting that the price is an uptrend and may continue to head higher.

The 4-hours MACD is also in the positive zone, and pointing towards buyers’ strength for BTC vs the USD.
