  • The price is correcting gains, but it remains well supported above $31,500 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near $31,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair could start an extended downside correction if it breaks the $32,500 support zone.

However, the price failed to clear the $33,800 resistance zone. It seems like it failed near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downside correction from the $34,780 swing high to $32,333 swing low.

It is now trading in a contracting triangle with resistance near the $33,550 zone on the hourly chart. A clear break above the $33,550 and $33,800 levels could open the doors for a fresh increase. A close above the $34,000 may further increase the chances of a push towards $35,000 and $35,500 in the near term.

Dips Supported in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $33,500 and $33,800 levels, it could break the triangle support and continue lower. The next major support is near the $31,500 level.
