The weekly MACD has also recently turned bearish for the first time since the bottom was set and Bitcoin went on yet another parabolic rally.
The next key resistance is near the $10,350 level and a connecting bearish trend line on the hourly chart.
Above the trend line, the next resistance is near $10,400. It coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $10,697 high to $10,095 low. The main resistance for bitcoin is near the $10,500 level. A successful daily close above $10,500 is needed for a solid upward move. Besides, there is a rising channel or a bearish flag forming with support near $10,040 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
If there is a downside break below the channel support, the price could even break the $10,000 support. The next key support is near the $9,800 area, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline towards $9,500 and $9,250.
Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly trading in a bearish zone below the $10,400 and $10,500 levels. Overall, if the price continues to struggle, the bears are likely to aim a break below $9,800.
