Daily Price Outlook

    * Bitcoin breaks above the $27,000 barrier, but needs to surpass $27,800 for a substantial upward move.

    * Price correction follows a low near $25,851, with a bullish trend line break near $27,000 on the BTC/USD hourly chart.

    * Resistance levels are seen at $27,400 and $27,800, while support lies at $27,000 and the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average.

The price of bitcoin is showing signs of life as it breaks beyond the $27,000 barrier. Bitcoin, however, has to break over the $27,800 resistance level before any substantial upward movement can occur. Before the bulls came in, the price had fallen below $27,000 and had gotten as low as $26,200.

The price has formed a low around $25,851 and is currently correcting higher. A key bearish trend line near $27,000 on the hourly chart of BTC/USD has been broken, and the currency pair is now trading above both $26,500 and that line.

Bitcoin's current price is above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the fall from the $28,334 swing high to the $25,851 low. Price is trading above the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average and $26,500.

The 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent decline ($27,400) is providing initial resistance. Close to $27,800 is the next major barrier to growth.

If the price is able to close above $27,800, it may begin a solid uptrend. The next significant resistance level is about $28,000, above which the price might rise to $28,500.

But if Bitcoin can't go through $27,400, we might see another drop. On the downside, $27,000 and the 100 hourly Simple Moving Average provide near-term support.

If prices drop below the $26,500 area, the market may experience further weakness. In that case, it's possible that the price will fall back to the $26,000 level. Bitcoin's next significant support is at $25,000, so if prices keep falling, that's where it might end up.
