Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

This past week, bitcoin started a decent recovery wave from the $6,521 low against the US Dollar. BTC price gained pace above the $7,000 resistance area. Moreover, there was a break above the key $7,400 resistance area.

Finally, the price rallied above the $7,600 level, but it struggled to test the $8,000 resistance area. It seems like the price formed a short term top near the $7,880 area and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $7,678 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Bitcoin price is currently correcting lower below the $7,500 level.

Besides, the price is now trading below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $6,521 low to $7,873 high. On the downside, an immediate support is near the $7,200 level.

Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $6,521 low to $7,873 high is near the $7,197 level to provide support. If there are more downsides, the price could test the main $7,000 support area in the near term.

Therefore, a daily close below the main $7,000 support could start a fresh bearish wave. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to break the $6,500 support in the near term.

On the upside, the price is facing a lot of hurdles near the $7,700 and $7,800 levels. However, the price must settle above the $8,000 resistance area, the trend line, and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) to start a strong rise in the coming weeks.

Bitcoin Price

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is facing a fresh round of selling below $7,500. Though, the price is approaching a couple of important supports near $7,200 and $7,000, where the bulls are likely to take a stand.
