On Wednesday (December 18), after Bitcoin had fallen below $6,500 for the first time since May 11, strong buying pressure finally arrived, taking Bitcoin to above the $6,800 level, and heading fast toward $7,000:

Bitcoin started today at $6,629, and three hours later, it had gone up by $100. Bitcoin then started falling and kept falling until 13:20 UTC by which time it had reached $6,466, which is the lowest level it has been since May 11.

Bitcoin below $6,500 was too good a bargain for the bulls to ignore, and within around two hours, strong buying pressure had helped Bitcoin to rise 6.15% to $6,864. 

Currently, Bitcoin is trading at $6,839, up 1.21% in the past 24-hour period:
