  • BTC/USD dropped from $8,215.70 to $8,030.50 this Tuesday.
  • The resistance level at $8,090 prevents any further upward movement.

After a brief foray into the $8,200-zone, BTC/USD had a hugely bearish Tuesday, wherein the price fell from $8,215.70 to $8,030.50. Since then, the bulls have tried to recover the price this Wednesday as BTC/USD has slightly improved to $8,037.55. The hourly chart shows us that BTC/USD soared to $8,288.50, where it met resistance and dropped to $8,037.55. The daily confluence detector lacks any visible support levels, so further drop can be expected.
