Looking at the 2-hours chart, bitcoin topped near the $10,199 level and recently started a downside correction. There was a break below the $10,040 and $10,000 support levels.

Besides, the bears were able to push the price below the $9,900 level and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). The decline was such that the price spiked below the $9,780 support and traded as low as $9,740.

It is currently consolidating above the $9,800 level. An initial resistance is near the $9,845 level and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from $10,199 to $9,740 is also near the $9,848 level.

Therefore, a successful break above the $9,970 and $10,040 levels is needed for more gains in the coming sessions. The next major resistance is near $10,200, above which the price is likely to surge towards the $10,500 level.

If there is a downside break below the trend line and the $9,780 support area, there is a risk of a larger downside correction. The next major support is near $9,525.
