There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,338 high to $7,631 low. However, the price seems to be facing a strong resistance near $8,150.

Moreover, there is a short term bearish trend line forming with resistance near $8,100 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
