Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD sits quietly under $8,000, storm’s brewing?  - Bitcoin confluence

  • BTC/USD has made another failed recovery attempt.
  • $8,100-$8,200 area creates critical resistance for BTC in the short run.

Bitcoin (BTC) attempted to break above $8,000 in five days out of six. However, all the attempts have failed to create a robust bullish momentum needed to take the coin out of this deadlock. At the time of writing, BTC/USD is changing hands at $7,959, unchanged both on a daily basis and since the start of Wednesday trading.
