As per our previous BTCUSD analysis, price remains in a bearish trend, having formed a downward sloping wedge pattern. There were some signs that gave us hope for an upward breakout, but the inability to break above $7,820 has lead price to pull back towards $7,000.
Red lines – wedge pattern
Bitcoin is trading inside a downward sloping long-term wedge pattern. Trend is bearish as long as price is below the upper wedge boundary at $8,500. Resistance at $8,500 is key, so bulls will need to break it first. Support is found at $7,075. Inability to hold above it will push price towards $6,000. We are currently at a major Fibonacci reversal area and traders should be very cautious.
