BTC/USD price chart

Bitcoin price attempt to climb the ladder above $7,000 was met by increased selling activities in the zone between $6,800 - $6,900. This left the psychological zone at $7,000 untested, however, the area remains critical to Bitcoin price near term trend. If Bitcoin continues to stay under $7,000, sellers’ confidence will continue to grow. At the same time, buyers’ exhaustion will become apparent, culminating in losses towards the support at $6,400.

Extended losses beneath $6,000 could trigger a fall to $5,000 in a bid to allow more buyers to enter and buy low. Bitcoin is not able to break above the zone at $7,000, despite the technical picture being healthy because fundamentals still lag. More buying entries will increase the trading volume placing BTC in a formidable rally towards $8,000.
