Bitcoin price has been on a downtrend since early June. However, with the recent price action on BTCUSD, it’s probable that the cryptocurrency has broken its downtrend. Does this mean we will soon see the cryptocurrency take another shot at $10,000.00?

A closer look at the 1-hour time frame would show that bitcoin price could pull back some of its gains and retest the previous trendline for support. BTCUSD could trade lower to $9,341.50 where the trendline coincides with the area between the 50% and 61.8% Fib levels (when you draw the Fibonacci retracement tool from the low of July 7 to the high of July 8). If support at this price does not hold, bitcoin price could fall lower to $9,223.67 where it bottomed last July 7 and also test the 100 SMA for support.
