Bitcoin – BTCUSD Regains the Critical $7,000 mark
Bitcoin – BTCUSD strong rebound gave bulls a breath and the short term control. The crypto pair stalled yesterday at $7,453 and briefly breached the descending trendline which started in mid-November.
On the upside, intraday resistance for BTCUSD stands at $7,372 the daily high. If bitcoin breaks above that level the next target for bulls is the $7,453 high from the trading session yesterday. More buyers will join the action if BTCUSD breaks that resistance. A break above the 50-day MA at $7,933 might cancel the bearish momentum and will scetch a brighter outlook for bitcoin.
On the other hand, first support for BTCUSD now stands at $7,114 today’s low. The $7,000 mark offered strong support for many days the previous week and will be the next support again. The next critical level on the downside stands at $6,400 the low from yesterday’s session. If bitcoin breaks below yesterday’s low then the next support will be met at $6,160 the low from May 17th.
