Bitcoin Price- Continue Buying?
Bitcoin price as mentioned found sellers near a major resistance area of $450 and corrected lower. However, there is a bullish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed from Bitstamp), which acted as a support and prevented any further losses. The price is now attempting to recover in the near term, and may trade higher moving ahead.
It is currently trading near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $448 high to $404 low. If buyers manage to take it above the stated fib level, then more gains are possible. The next hurdle on the upside could be around the 88.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $448 high to $404 low.
On the downside, one must keep following the highlighted trend line and support area. A break below it may put a lot of pressure on the bulls, and could take the price towards the 100 simple moving average (H4 chart). The most important support on the downside is around the $400 handle.
