Bitcoin price is trading in a bearish trend zone below the $7,200 resistance. The BTCUSD pair is currently struggling to stay above the $7,000 support level.
Bitcoin Price Medium-Term Analysis
Last week, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) struggled to recover above the $7,300 resistance level, which is below the 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA). After several failed attempts, Bitcoin price started to decline below the $7,100 support level.
Finally, Bitcoin price tested the $7,000 support and a new monthly low was formed at $7,008 level. At the time of writing, BTC is consolidating losses above the $7,000 level.
On the upside, a break above the $7,200 is a must to start a substantial recovery. This will likely open the doors for more upsides above the $7,400 level.
On the downside, a break below the $7,000 support level would result in a risk of a sharp decline below the $6,800 support. The next major support is near the $6,600 and $6,500 levels.
In the meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal.
BTCUSD Price Short-Term Analysis

Meanwhile, the MACD line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.
