Bitcoin Price Analysis

After a nice recovery above the $7,500 resistance, bitcoin struggled to gain strength above $7,700 and $7,800 levels against the US Dollar. BTC traded as high as $7,874 and recently started a fresh decline.

It broke the $7,630 and $7,500 support levels to enter a bearish zone. Moreover, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $6,857 swing low to $7,874 high.

The price is now trading below the $7,400 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An immediate support is near the $7,200 level. Currently, it seems like bitcoin is about to trade below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $6,857 swing low to $7,874 high.

If there is a downside break below the $7,200 support area, the price could revisit the $7,000 support area. Additionally, an intermediate support is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $6,857 swing low to $7,874 high.

The bears are gaining momentum and if the price clears the $7,000 support, there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the mentioned scenario, the price may perhaps revisit the $6,500 support area in the near term.

On the upside, there is a key resistance forming near the $7,400 level. Besides, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $7,390 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Therefore, a clear break above the $7,400 resistance is needed for a fresh increase. Furthermore, the next immediate resistance is near the $7,500 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is under a lot of pressure below the $7,400 level and it seems like it could continue to move down towards $7,000 or even $6,800.
