Bitcoin Price Upside Hurdles

This past week, there was a sharp downside move from well above $7,600 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined and broke the $7,500 and $7,260 support levels to move into a bearish zone. It even traded below the $7,000 level and is currently well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). A new monthly low was formed at $6,881 and the price is currently consolidating.

An initial resistance on the upside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last dip from the $8,297 high to $6,881 low. More importantly, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $7,320 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. Below the trend line resistance, the previous support at $7,260 is a crucial resistance. Therefore, the $7,260 and $7,320 resistances are major barriers for more gains in BTC in the near term. Should there be a break above $7,320, the price could recover. The next resistance awaits near $7,600 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last dip from the $8,297 high to $6,881 low.
