  • The pair could start a fresh increase as long as it is above the $11,200 support and the 100 hourly SMA.

Bitcoin Price Remains Strong

After a couple of failed attempts, bitcoin price finally broke the $11,500 resistance against the US Dollar (as discussed yesterday). BTC even surpassed the $11,650 level and settled well above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

It traded to a new monthly high near $11,724 before starting a short-term downside correction. There was a break below the $11,600 and $11,500 levels. It is currently testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $11,199 low to $11,724 high.

The first major support is near the $11,400 level. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $11,199 low to $11,724 high. There is also a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $11,320 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

On the upside, the price is facing a short-term resistance at $11,500. The next key resistance is near the $11,700 level, but the main hurdle for the bulls is near $11,800. A break above $11,800 might increase the chances of more upsides above $12,000.
