Bitcoin Price Resistance

After a great upside run toward the $20,000 level, bitcoin price faced selling pressure against the US Dollar. There was a sharp decline below the $18,000 and $15,000 support levels. More importantly, there was a break below two important bullish trend lines with support near $17,800 on the 4-hours chart of BTC/USD. These trend lines break opened the doors for more losses and the pair tumbled below the $12,000 level. A low was formed at $10,688 from a minor recovery wave was initiated.

The price has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $19,628 high to $10,688 low. However, there is a bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $15,150 on the same chart. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $19,628 high to $10,688 low is also acting as a major hurdle for buyers. As long as the trend line resistance is intact, the pair might continue to struggle. Only a close above the $15,500 would negate the bearish pressure and may call for more gains.

On the flip side, if the price continues to move down, then there can be more slides toward $12,500 in the near term.
