Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) price extended its decline and traded towards the $9,300 level

Recently, we saw a bearish break below the $10,000 and $9,800 support in BTC against the US Dollar. The price even settled below the $9,760 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a break below the $9,500 support and the price extended its decline towards the $9,300 level. A swing low was formed near $9,308 and the price is currently correcting higher.

An immediate resistance is near the $9,500 level. Additionally, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,304 high to $9,308 low is also near the $9,500 level. More importantly, there is a short term breakout pattern forming with resistance near $9,500 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, if there is an upside break above $9,500, the price could extend its upside correction.

The next key resistance is near the $9,760 level (the previous support). However, the main resistance is near the $9,800 level. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,304 high to $9,308 low. To move back in a positive zone, the price must break the $10,000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $9,400 level. If there is a downside break below the $9,400 and $9,300 levels, the price could extend its decline. The next target for the bears could be near the $9,000 level. An intermediate support is near the $9,200 level.
