The bulls are now defending the $13,700 zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $13,306 swing low to $14,065 high is also near the $13,685 level to act as a strong support.

On the upside, the $13,880 level is an initial resistance. A clear break above $13,880 and then a follow up move above the $14,000 resistance could increase the chances of a sharp rise towards the $14,500 level in the coming sessions.

Fresh Decline in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to regain strength above $13,880, there is a risk of a fresh decline. The first major support on the downside is near the $13,680 level and the 100 hourly SMA.

A downside break below the $13,680 level and the 100 hourly SMA may possibly start another decline towards the $13,400 and $13,300 levels in the near term.

Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly losing momentum in the bullish zone.
