The 2-hours chart indicates that the price started a solid rise and traded above the $6,500 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (2-hours). The price traded as high as $6,525 and later it started a downside correction below $6,490.
Sellers pushed the price below the $6,460 support and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,245 low to $6,525 high. However, there are a few key trend support levels positioned near the $6,395 level.
First, the 100 simple moving average (2-hours) is positioned at $6,402. Second, the previous bearish trend line could act as a support near $6,395. Finally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,245 low to $6,525 high is at $6,385.
Therefore, if the price accelerates the current correction wave, buyers are likely to appear around the $6,395 or $6,385 level. Below the $6,385 level, the next support is around the $6,345 level.
On the upside, an initial resistance is $6,460, above which the price may perhaps climb above the $6,500 resistance. Finally, if there is a break above the $6,525 high, buyers could push the price towards $6,600.
Overall, bitcoin price is back in a positive zone and it could resume its upside move above $6,500 as long as buyers protect the $6,385 support plus the 100 SMA.
