Key Points

  • Bitcoin price remains in a bearish trend and is currently trading around $7,000 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance at $7,300 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair must stay above the $7,000 handle to avoid further losses in the near term.

Bitcoin price is under a strong selling pressure below $7,300 against the US Dollar. Let’s see if BTC/USD can hold the $7,000 support level or not.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

There was no major upside recovery above $7,350 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair corrected higher a few points yesterday, but buyers failed to push the price above the $7,350 and $7,400 resistance levels. As a result, there was a downside reaction and the price broke the last swing low of $7,150. It traded close to the $7,000 level and a low was formed at $7,048.

At the moment, the price is consolidating losses above the $7,000 and it remains at a risk of more losses. An initial hurdle for buyers is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $7,445 high to $7,048 low. However, the most significant resistance is close to $7,250, which was a support earlier. The stated $7,250 level is also around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $7,445 high to $7,048 low. Above $7,250, there is a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance at $7,300 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.
