  • The pair remains supported and it is likely to move further higher above the $7,000 level in the near term.

Bitcoin price is gaining momentum above $6,600 against the US Dollar. BTC/USD could accelerate gains above $7,000 to target the $7,250 level.

Bitcoin Price Trend

This past week, there was a downside correction below the $6,700 support in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair traded below the $6,500 support level, but declines were protected. The $6,400-6,450 support zone acted as a support and prevented declines. A support base was formed and the price jumped above the $6,600 and $6,700 resistance levels. There was also a break above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $6,795 high to $6,454 low.

It opened the doors for more gains and the price traded above the $6,800 resistance. However, there was no test of the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last decline from the $6,795 high to $6,454 low. Therefore, there are high chances that the price may accelerate gains above $6,800 in the near term. The next resistance is at $6,875. Above this, the price may move above the $7,000 barrier to test the 1.618 Fib extension level. In the short term, there could be a downside correction towards the $6,700 support. More importantly, there is a major ascending channel in place with support at $6,600 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
