Bitcoin price broke above the $7,700 and $7,800 resistance and tested the $8,000 level before correcting lower. Will the BTCUSD pair continue the strong bullish move?
Bitcoin Price Medium-term Analysis
On January 6, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) was trading in a bullish trend zone. The price recovered nicely above the $7.300 and $7,400 resistance levels. This paved the way for additional gains above the $7,500 resistance.
Moreover, there was a close above the $7,700 and Bitcoin price spiked towards the $8,000 resistance, where sellers emerged. A new 2020 high is formed near $7,990 and the price is currently correcting lower. At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is trading at the $7,870 level.
On the upside, if more buyers emerge, the crypto’s price will rise and retest the $8,000 level. A break above the $8,000 level could see the price surge towards $8,500 and $8,800. Conversely, if there is an extended downside correction, Bitcoin price might test the $7,700 support. Any further downsides might discourage the bulls and the price could dip towards the $7,500 support level.
Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal.
