In the face of active bearish activities, bitcoin price rallied down the charts by a considerable 6% within the last 48 hours. After touching a week record low at $9,157, the BTC/USD trading pair is testing the support at $9,150 level where major strongholds exist.

BTC/USD 4-Hour Price Chart

On the 4-hour timeframe chart, BTC/USD is currently trading at $9,157. The pair is presently testing major support at $9,050. Further plunge below this level is highly undesirable. The immediate level of resistance, in the event that the pair falls below $9,050 lies at the 1.272 Fibonacci retracement level ($8,913).

There are a few activities going on at the 78.2% Fibo levels where the bulls are holding the support level there. The prevailing side, however, will succeed in bringing the price upward a bit towards $9,200 again. If the bulls fail to achieve this action, it may encourage a bearish continuation towards the $8,913 mark. 

On the chart above, BTC/USD price action is currently revolving below the mid-level of the Bollinger band indicator. This means selling pressure intends to drag the price further downwards towards the bottom in the long-term. 

The Resistance Strength Index (RSI) however, is struggling around the oversold condition at 25.0. Further plunge below this level is a great possibility. At best, we should expect a plunge towards the 20.0 RSI level where the price may be changing hands at around $8,910.
