Bitcoin Price Holds Ground

Bitcoin price started a decent increase above the $42,000 resistance zone. BTC was able to clear the $42,500 and $43,200 resistance levels. However, the bears were active near the $43,800 zone.

A new weekly high was formed near $43,779 before the price started a short-term downside correction. There was a drop below the $43,200 level. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $41,650 swing low to the $43,779 high.

Bitcoin is now trading above $42,750 and the 100 hourly Simple moving average. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $42,650 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The trend line is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $41,650 swing low to the $43,779 high.

Immediate resistance is near the $43,250 level. The next key resistance could be $43,800, above which the price could start a decent increase. The next stop for the bulls may perhaps be $44,500.

Another Bearish Wave In BTC?
