Bitcoin price is extending its decline below $8,000 against the US Dollar. BTC could soon test the bearish target of $7,500 as discussed in one of the recent analyses.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

After a short term correction, bitcoin struggled to break the $8,750 resistance area against the US Dollar. As a result, the price started consolidating losses below $8,500 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a downside break below the $8,350 and $8,200 support levels. It seems like the bulls failed to protect losses below the $8,200 support level.

Moreover, there was a bearish break below a contracting triangle with support near $8,350 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair even broke the key $8,000 support and traded to a new monthly low at $7,736. Recently, there was an upside correction above the $7,850 level. The price traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,646 high to $7,736 low.

However, the upward move is facing resistance near the $8,200 level (the previous support). Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,646 high to $7,736 low is capping upsides. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $8,040 on the same chart. Therefore, an upside break above $8,050 and $8,200 is needed for a decent recovery. Read More...
