  • Resistance levels: $7,000, $7,200, $7,400
  • Support levels: $3,500, $3,300, $3,100 

Yesterday, the BTCUSD pair was in the bearish trend zone as the bulls made a bullish movement. The crypto's price is still below the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA which indicates that Bitcoin is likely to fall. The 12-day EMA is resisting price movement to the upside. If the price breaks above the EMAs, the crypto will face resistance at the $3,800.

If the crypto's price falls, it will find support at the $3,500 price level. On the other hand, if the $3,500 price level is broken, the crypto will revisit its previous low of $3,200 price level. Meanwhile, the stochastic bands are in the oversold region and below the 25% range which indicates that the crypto is a strong bearish momentum and a sell signal.
