The trend line is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $13,430 swing low to $14,076 high. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also following the trend line at $13,850.

As long as bitcoin price is above the trend line support and the 100 hourly SMA, it could start a fresh increase. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the $13,800 level. The main resistance is near the $14,000 level. A successful close above the $14,000 resistance could open the doors for a sharp rally towards $14,400 or even $14,500.

Downside Break in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to stay above the $13,600 and $13,580 support levels, there is a risk of a downside break. The first key support below the 100 hourly SMA is near the $13,500 level.

A downside break below the $13,500 level is likely to spark a fresh increase in selling. In the stated case, the bears may perhaps attempt a test of the $13,000 support level in the coming days.
