Bitcoin Price Faces Hurdles

Bitcoin price started a minor upside correction from the $21,000 support zone. BTC was able to slowly move higher above the $21,250 and $21,500 levels.

However, the bulls struggled to gain strength for a push towards the $22,000 resistance. Bitcoin is trading above the $21,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the upside, immediate resistance is near the $21,750 and $21,800 levels.

The first significant resistance on the upside sits near the $22,000 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $22,000 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
 

A clear move above the trend line resistance might send the price towards the $22,500 zone. The next major resistance could be near the $22,650 zone.

It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $24,416 swing high to the $20,797 low. Any more gains might send the price towards the $24,000 resistance zone.

Fresh Decline in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $22,000 resistance zone, it could start another decline. Immediate support on the downside is near the $21,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
