Bitcoin Price Decline

We recently saw in the BTC to USD how there was a change in the trend after a top at $1152 (data feed via Poloniex). There was a sharp downside move, as the price was back below $1000 and the 100 simple moving average on the 4-hours chart.

During the downside move, the price broke a support trend line at $1075 on the 4-hours chart. It opened the doors for more downside, as the price traded as low as $818.

Later, the price started a recovery, and moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1025 high to $818 low. This ignited an upside move towards the 100 simple moving average, which kind of acted as a resistance.

The price failed just below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1025 high to $818 low, and started traded one more time. The price was below $900 yesterday, and currently back above it.

It remains supported near $880, but on the upside the 100 simple moving average near $950 may continue to act as a major barrier for the BTC buyers.

Only a push above $950 may take the price back towards $1000. It looks like there can be ranging moves in $850-$950 for some time before the next move. Overall, the price is stable and looking for more gains.

The H4 RSI for BTC/USD (data feed via Poloniex) is below the 50 level, which is a negative sign at the moment.

Happy Trading!
