Looking at the 2-hours chart, bitcoin settled above the $8,700 level and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). However, it struggled to continue above the $8,975 resistance area and recently corrected lower.

If the bulls are able to gain momentum above $8,820, the next stop could be the main $8,975 resistance area. A successful close above the $8,975 resistance area could set the pace for a larger upward move towards the $9,090 and $9,200 resistance levels.

Overall, bitcoin price might dip a few points towards the $8,625 support level before the bulls aim a fresh increase towards the $8,975 and $9,090 levels in the near term.
