Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Technical Outlook

On the upside, an immediate resistance level is near $17,165. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the latest slide from the swing high of $17,440 to the low of $16,888. The first big obstacle is near $17,250, and the price may begin another steady rise.

The price could move toward the $17,500 resistance in the scenario above. The next big barrier is near $17,650, above which the price will rise in the near term toward the $18,000 zone.

If Bitcoin fails to break over the $17,165 barrier level, there could be further negatives. On the downside, there is immediate support near $16,850. The next major support is near the $16,800 zone.

A break below the $16,800 support level may signal a move toward $16,500. Any further losses could potentially test the critical $16,000 support zone in the near term.
