Bitcoin News and Talking Points

- Bitcoin sell-off nears robust support zone. Failure to hold will see losses deepen.

- Recent down-trend line respected so far.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price – Important Support Zone in Play

The latest cryptocurrency sell-off has seen Bitcoin give back its recent pull-back gains and enter a resistance zone which needs to hold if further short-term gains are to be made. After making a series of bullish positive ‘higher lows’ in the last two weeks, BTC has reversed and is currently making its forth ‘lower high’ in a row, a bearish market indicator. The largest digital coin has now entered a notable zone of resistance between $9,900 and $9,300 made up of a series of lows since early-December. The lower part of the zone also crosses with the recent downtrend channel, adding to the areas technical importance.

A move and close below $9,300 would open up the way to the next support level provided by the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $8,523 ahead of the February 6 low of $6,000.

If resistance holds, and the current run of lower highs is broken, then Bitcoin could test a cluster of resistance levels between $10,600 and $10,970. A break above here would also see the downtrend broken, potentially opening the way for further gains.
