Bitcoin Price – Buying favored

Bitcoin price broke a channel pattern, which was highlighted in yesterday’s post. However, as I kept saying the $405-00 support area is a major barrier for the bears. The price found support around the same area yesterday, and recovered. The price managed to clear the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $419 high to $403 low.
