Bitcoin Price Analysis
Recently, bitcoin price started a major decline below $8,000 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined heavily and broke the $7,800 and $7,600 support levels. The pair even broke the $7,800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a break below the $7,550 level and the price tested the key $7,500 support area. A swing low was formed at $7,502 and the price is currently correcting higher.
It is currently testing the $7,700 resistance area and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $8,131 high to $7,502 low. If there is an upside correction, the price could test the $7,800 resistance area. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $7,820 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is clearly facing an uphill task near $7,800, $7,850, and the 100 hourly SMA. The next key resistance is near the $8,000 level. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $8,131 high to $7,502 low is near the $7,850 to act as a resistance.
Therefore, a successful break above the trend line and $7,850 could push the price towards the $8,000 barrier. If there is an upside break above $8,000, the price could move back in a positive zone. Conversely, if there is a downside break below $7,600, the price could retest the $7,500 support area.
