Bitcoin Price Turns Red

Bitcoin price started a steady decline after it broke the $28,800 support zone. BTC gained bearish momentum below the $28,200 and $28,000 levels.


The bears seem to be gaining strength and they were able to push the price toward the $27,200 support. A low is formed near $27,282 and the price is now consolidating losses. It is trading below $28,000 and the 100 hourly Simple moving average.





There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $28,150 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Bitcoin is now facing resistance near the $27,750 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $29,128 swing high to the $27,282 low.


The next major resistance is near the trend line zone or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $29,128 swing high to the $27,282 low. A close above the trend line resistance might send the price toward the $28,800 resistance.





The next key resistance is near $29,120, above which the price might rise toward the $29,500 resistance zone. Any more gains could open the doors for a decent increase toward the $29,750 resistance.


More Losses in BTC?

If Bitcoin’s price fails to clear the $28,150 resistance, it could continue to move down. Immediate support on the downside is near the $27,250 level and the recent low.


The next major support is near the $27,000 zone, below which the price might drop toward the $26,000 support zone. Any more losses might take Bitcoin toward the $25,500 level in the near term.
