Bitcoin price dropped below $ 11,500! Here’s what happened …

Yesterday, we saw a significant rejection of over $ 12,000 in Bitcoin price against the US dollar . BTC approached the $ 12,065 level and started a sharp decline. The bears managed to cross the $ 11,650 and $ 11,500 support levels to trigger a major decline. The price even broke the $ 11,350 zone and fell below the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break below a major bullish trend line with support near $ 11,640 on the hourly chart of the BTC / USD pair.

The pair tested the $ 11,200 support and formed a low near $ 11,186. Then a recovery wave started from the low of $ 11,186. Bitcoin price rose above the $ 11,350 level. It even rose above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop. The bulls are currently struggling to push the price above the $ 11,450 and $ 11,500 levels.

Here are the critical levels that Bitcoin can test in the coming sessions.

The next major resistance is near the $ 11,650 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average, according to the analyst. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline is near the $ 11,625 level. According to the analyst, a successful break above the $ 11,500 level followed by a follow-up move above $ 11,650 is essential for a new upward move in the near term.
