Technical analysis

This week, the coin fell below support zone of $ 4,000, while the bears mustered enough strength to lower the asset almost to the main resistance line of $ 3,000. On a scale of 4-hour chart, the Bitcoin is trading well below the 100 SMA, which is not the best sign for buyers.

However, yesterday, the cryptocurrency fell back slightly and was able to overcome the 0.236 Fibonacci level, laid on a wave draining from 4050 to $ 3215. While upward price movement stopped several resistance lines in the area of $ 3,600.

So, to grow to $ 4000 at least in the short term, buyers need to overcome the levels 3550, 3600 and 3700 dollars on good trading volumes. A rise above $ 4,000 will mark the beginning of a local uptrend up to 5700 dollars.
