Bitcoin Gold Price Resistance
After a decent upside move, bitcoin gold price faced sellers near $390-400 against the US Dollar. The price started a downside move and traded below the $350 and $340 support levels. It even traded as low as $303.76 from where a correction was initiated. The price is currently correcting higher towards $330. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $392 high to $303 low.
Moreover, there are two bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $330 and $335 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD. The first trend line is near $330 and it already acted as a barrier once. The second trend line is near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $392 high to $303 low. Any upsides near $330-335 are likely to face sellers in the near term. Only close above $350 and the 100 hourly simple moving average might negate the current bearish trend.
On the downside, a break below the $303 would open the doors for a test of $280. Any further declines should be limited by a major support at $250.
