  • The 6600.00 support zone is now even more significant as a break could give us some clues.

BTC/USD 1-hour chart

Bitcoin managed to get as high as 7,254.74 but sold off as the bulls could not manage to keep the buying momentum going. The bulls then tried to take another run at the highs and the second wave only managed to get as high as 7048.98 and briefly hold above the 7K zone. 

On the downside now, the price managed to find some support at the 55 exponential moving average (EMA). The spike through the EMA took the price to the 6600.00 level and now this is a key zone. If the price breaks the support then a new lower high and lower low would be created possibly starting the change in trend.

Underneath that, the blue trendline could also offer support and it is quite close to the 200 1-hour simple moving average (SMA). Lastly, the RSI has moved below the 50 mid-line indicating the bearishness could be more permanent.
