Bitcoin Gold Price Upside Hurdle
There were continuing declines in bitcoin gold price below the $240 support against the US Dollar. The price extended its recent decline and moved below the $220 and $210 support levels. It even attempted a break below the $200 level and formed a low at $199.83. Later, it managed to recover slightly and it moved back above the $200 level. It also succeeded in breaking the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $246 high to $199 low.
However, there are many hurdles on the upside such as the $220 level. It is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $246 high to $199 low. Above the $220-222 level, the next major resistance is around the $230 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
