Bitcoin Price Analysis
Recently, there was the third rejection from the $6,800-6,820 resistance zone in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined and traded below the $6,700 level. However, the decline was prevented by the $6,600 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $6,360 low to $6,850 high also provided support.
As a result, the price bounced back and moved above the $6,700 resistance area. However, bitcoin buyers continue to struggle to clear the $6,800-6,820 resistance zone. A break above this is needed for a push towards the $7,000 handle in the near term. At the moment, it seems like there is a key contracting triangle formed with support at $6,700 and resistance near $6,780 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The triangle support is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,595 low to $6,812 high.
Looking at the chart, the price is approaching the next break either above $6,800 or below $6,650 in the near term. Above $6,800, the price will most likely visit $7,000. On the flip side, a break below $6,700 and $6,650 may increase bearish pressure in the short term.
