Bitcoin Price Weekly Analysis (BTC)

This past week, bitcoin started a nasty decline below the $8,000 support area against the US Dollar. As a result, BTC price gained bearish momentum below the $7,800 support and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

It opened the doors for more losses and the price even declined sharply below the $7,500 support. Moreover, the price tested the $7,000 support area (the first bearish target as per the medium term outlook).

Finally, the price spiked below $6,900 and a new multi-month low was formed near the $6,776 level. At the outset, bitcoin price is correcting higher and recently traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $8,213 high to $6,776 low.

However, the upward correction is facing resistance near the $7,400 level. Additionally, there is another breakdown pattern forming with support near $7,240 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.

If there is a downside break below $7,240 and $7,200, there are chances of more downsides in the near term. In the mentioned case, the price is likely to break the $7,000 support and $6,800 level. The main target for the bears seem to be the $6,500 support area.

On the upside, the price must break the triangle resistance and $7,400. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $8,213 high to $6,776 low is near the $7,500 level.

The key resistance is near the $7,550 level and a connecting bearish trend line on the same chart. A clear break above the $7,500 and $7,550 resistance levels could set the pace for more gains.
