  • Bitcoin’s major support shifts to $7,086 following the striking decline.
  • Recovery will not come easy as the path of least resistance remains to the south.

Bitcoin bulls’ mission to stay above $8,000 did not end as expected. A bearish wave left no stone unturned as it put immense pressure on key support areas $7,800 and $7,000. Several analysts had  predicted Bitcoin’s drop to $7,400 while others still maintain that the granddaddy of crypto assets is headed for $6,000 before any significant recovery is experienced.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin is trading at $7,4018 after testing $7,300 (new support). The recovery, however, lethargic stepped above $7,500. Lack of enough momentum to sustain the recovery movement has seen BTC adjust to the current market value.
