Bitcoin Continues to Find Support

BTC climbed above the $62,000 level before starting a downside correction. A high was formed near $62,885 before starting a minor decline. The price settled below the $62,000 and $61,200 levels. However, it continued to find support near the $59,200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price is up but it is struggling above the $62,200 level. A high was formed near $62,672 before another decline could occur. It dropped as low as $59,900 and recently climbed above $61,000.

Bitcoin surpassed the 50% Fib retracement level of the downside correction from the $62,672 high to $59,900 high. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near $61,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is currently testing the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downside correction from the $62,672 high to $59,900 high. According to Jindal, initial resistance on the upside is near the $62,000 level. The first key resistance is near the $62,200 level.

A clear break above the $62,200 resistance could open the doors for more upsides. The next major resistance is near the $63,500 level, above which the price could rise towards the $65,000 level.
