Bitcoin price started a major downside correction below $8,000 against the US Dollar. BTC formed a double top pattern, but it is now trading close to a few crucial supports near $6,800.
Bitcoin Price Analysis
Recently, bitcoin price made another attempt to climb above the $8,330 and $8,350 resistances against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair failed to climb above $8,350 and formed a major double top pattern. As a result, there was a sharp decline below the $8,000 support area. Besides, there was a clear break below the $7,800 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
More importantly, this week’s followed bullish trend line was breached with support at $7,850 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair declined more than 10% and broke the $7,450 and $7,000 support levels. It spiked towards the $6,650 support area and formed a swing low at $6,645. Recently, it recovered nicely above the $7,000 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the latest drop from the $8,048 high to $6,645 low. The price is now trading above $7,200, but it is facing a strong resistance near $7,350 and $7,400.
Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the latest drop from the $8,048 high to $6,645 low is also acting as a barrier for the bulls. If there is a successful close above $7,400, the price could rebound towards the $7,700 level. Besides, it might test the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the latest drop from the $8,048 high to $6,645 low. Conversely, if the price fails to surpass the $7,400 resistance, it is likely to decline again. An initial support is near $7,000, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline towards the $6,800 or $6,650 support zone.
