Bitcoin's long-term picture
Looking technically, BTC/USD moved back below pivotal $7,350 created by 61.8% Fibo retracement for the entire upside move from $3,226 low to $13924 high. A failure to settle above this barrier bodes ill for an immediate Bitcoin's forecast snack signals that more sell-off may be inshore with the nearest target at $7,000. This psychological support separates BTC from a deeper decline towards the lower line of the daily Bollinger Band at $6,661 and the recent low of $6,526.
