Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a downside break in bitcoin price below the $7,400 support against the US Dollar. BTC price broke many supports near $7,320 and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, the bears were able to push the price below the $7,280 support area. Finally, the price traded below the $7,200 support and tested the $7,160 support zone.

A low was formed near $7,159 and the price is currently correcting higher. An immediate resistance is near the $7,240 and $7,250 levels. Besides, there is a major declining channel forming with resistance near $7,240 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Above the channel resistance, the $7,280 level is a key resistance. Additionally, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $7,664 high to $7,159 low.

If bitcoin manages to recover above $7,240 and $7,280, the price could climb towards the next major resistance near the $7,400 area. More importantly, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $7,664 high to $7,159 low is also near the $7,410 level to stop the bulls.

If the bulls succeed in clearing the $7,400 resistance area, the price could surge towards $7,660 or $7,700. On the other hand, the price may perhaps continue to move down below $7,200.

An immediate support is near $7,160, below which the price is likely to accelerate towards $7,040 or $7,000 in the near term. Any further losses might call for a test of the $6,600 area.
