Bitcoin Price Analysis

Looking at the 2-hours chart, bitcoin even settled below the $7,000 support area and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). Finally, the price dived below the $6,840 support area and traded close to the $6,500 level.

A new monthly low was formed near $6,515 and the price is currently correcting higher. It broke the $6,700 resistance area, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the drop from $7,361 to $6,515.

At the outset, the price is testing the $6,940 and $6,950 resistance levels. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the drop from $7,361 to $6,515 is also a major hurdle near the $6,950 level.

Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance near $7,020 on the 2-hours chart. Therefore, bitcoin price is clearly facing many hurdles near $6,940, $7,020, $7,300, and another bearish trend line on the same chart.

The main resistance is near the $7,350 level and the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). A successful close above the $7,350 level is needed for upside continuation.

If not, the price is likely to resume its decline from $6,950 or $7,020. On the downside, an initial support is near the $6,800 level. If bitcoin price fails to stay above the $6,800 support, there is a risk of a fresh decline towards $6,500 or even $6,420 in the near term.
