The price even broke the $7,000 support, but it stayed well above the 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple). A swing low was formed near $6,762 and the price recently bounced back above $7,000. BTC is now trading well above the $7,000 support and it has already recovered above the 50% Fib retracement level of the slide from $7,587 to $6,762.
It is now trading near a crucial hurdle near $6,300 and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the slide from $7,587 to $6,762. However, the current price action is positive and there are high chances of a sharp rally above the $7,300 resistance level.
The next key resistance is near $7,390, above which the price is likely to run towards the $7,500 level or the $7,587 swing high. In the mentioned scenario, bitcoin price could even trade to a new 2019 high above $7,600.
In the short term, there could be swing moves, but the price remains well supported near $7,000 and a bullish trend line on the same chart. A close below the trend line support will most likely start the second correction wave towards $6,850 or even to 50 simple moving average (2-hours, purple) at $6,700.
