It opened the doors for more losses and the price declined below the $7,260 low.

The current price action suggests a downside break below $7,260 with a bearish angle. At the moment, the price is testing the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $7,260 low to $7,648 high. If the price breaks the $7,150 level, there could be more losses towards the $7,000 level.
