  • Bitcoin price bulls are focused on closing the week above $7,000 but can they deal with the resistance at $6,703 and $6,816?
  • The zone between $6,500-$6,600 comes out the strongest buyer congestion zone amid increasing selling activities.

The cryptocurrency market space is starting to turn bullish in the course of the European session after the bears dominated the Asian session. The drab action follows a recovery from the week’s low at $6,466 (also intraday low). The fall to this level occurred after buyers failed to sustain gains above $6,900 let alone break the critical resistance at $7,000.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin price is trading at $6,676 after adjusting upwards from the opening value of $6,621. The prevailing trend is bullish but the low volatility means that investors should not anticipate rapid price movements to the north.

Looking at the 1-hour chart, Bitcoin has tested the region between $6,500 and $6,500 twice in this week. In other words, this is Bitcoin’s current key support area and a possible buy zone in anticipation for gains towards $7,000. A break above $76,700 could easily allow extended bullish action targeting $7,000. However, buyers must be ready to battle several resistance levels at the descending trendline, the 50 SMA and the 100 SMA.
