- Bitcoin’s struggle at the $35,000 resistance level.
- Analysis of key support levels and potential downside scenarios.
- Market sentiment and indicators influencing Bitcoin’s price.
Bitcoin’s price recently made an attempt to break above the $34,500 mark. However, a significant downward correction could be in the cards if it closes below the 100 hourly SMA.
Despite its best efforts, Bitcoin is still grappling with the formidable resistance at $35,000. At present, it is trading just above $34,200 and maintaining its position above the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average.
Notably, a key ascending channel is taking shape, with support levels hovering around $34,300 as observed in the BTC/USD hourly chart provided by Kraken.
Should the price fail to hold above $34,000 and subsequently $33,400, a sharp decline may be on the horizon.
Bitcoin’s Price Finds Crucial Support
The price of Bitcoin recently embarked on another ascent, crossing the $34,200 resistance zone. This rally aimed for the $35,000 resistance zone but encountered a notable lack of momentum.
Reaching as high as $34,758, Bitcoin struggled to push higher and is currently in the process of correcting gains, dropping below the $34,500 level. The retracement saw it dip below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the upward movement from the $33,318 swing low to the $34,758 peak.
Nonetheless, Bitcoin is still holding its position above $34,200, along with the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average. The hourly BTC/USD chart also reveals the presence of a significant ascending channel, featuring support in the vicinity of $34,300.
Looking at the upside, immediate resistance sits around the $34,500 level, followed by potential obstacles near $34,750 or the upper trend line of the channel. The primary hurdle remains firmly at the $35,000 mark. A clear breach of this resistance could pave the way for another sustained upward movement.
If Bitcoin struggles to conquer the $34,750 resistance zone, it may embark on a fresh downward trajectory. Initial support lies close to the $34,200 level and the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average.
The next substantial support level emerges around $34,000, or specifically, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the upward movement from the $33,318 swing low to the $34,758 high. Should Bitcoin dip below $34,000, the risk of further losses increases, with potential declines toward the $33,400 level or even the $32,500 level.
