Bitcoin – BTCUSD Technical Analysis: All Eyes on 7,000 Support Zone
Bitcoin – BTCUSD bulls attempted many times the last trading sessions to generate an upward move but overwhelmed by intense selling pressure above the $7,500 mark. The failed attempts suggest that the bulls don’t have the power to start a leg higher.
Bears to initiate a downtrend first need to surpass the daily low at $7,174 and then need a close below the 7,000 mark. In case that we have a break below, then the downtrend might accelerate targeting the next support level at 6,600 the low from December 17th.
