Support levels: $7,800, $7,700, $7,600

Yesterday, July 31st, the BTC price was in a bearish trend. After their initial trial, the bulls fail to break the $8,500 price level but lost control to the bears who brought the price to its previous low - falling to $7615 at the time of writing. The bears might have exhausted their selling pressure because the price has reached the support zone.

The support zone includes prices from $7,400 to $7,600. Traders can initiate long trades in this zone and a stop loss at the $7,400 price level. When positions are taken up in this manner, the price will pick up momentum above the resistance level of $8,500. Meanwhile, the MACD line and the signal line are above the zero line which indicates a buy signal for the BTC price.

The bitcoin price is above the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA  which indicates that the bullish trend might be ongoing.
