BTC/USD daily chart
Bitcoin price has given away the support at $6,400 to trade at $6,361 at the time of writing. In spite of the drop from $6,423, the technical picture remains healthy. For instance, the RSI is holding the position above 50 after recovery from the weekend low at 39.58. The MACD is moving towards the mean line in a bid to re-enter the positive region. A bullish divergence above the MACD clearly shows buyers gaining traction against the sellers.
However, a rising triangle pattern could erase all the gains accrued in the past two weeks if Bitcoin fails to break above the $7,000 level and freefalls towards $6,000. Buyers must ensure that the triangle support is kept intact to avoid another devastating crash towards $5,000.
