Moreover, BTC price settled below the $7,400 pivot and the 100 hourly simple moving average.Finally, the price traded to a new weekly low at $7,159 and it is currently correcting higher. The recent high was near $7,410 and it seems like the price is struggling to gain strength above the $7,410 resistance.Bitcoin is currently declining and trading below $7,400. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent corrective wave from the $7,159 low to $7,410 high.An immediate support on the downside is near the $7,285 level. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent corrective wave from the $7,159 low to $7,410 high is near the $7,285 level.If there is a downside push below the $7,285 and $7,255 levels, the price is likely to retest the $7,200 support area. More importantly, if there is a daily close below the $7,200 support area, the price may perhaps struggle to even stay above the $7,000 support.On the upside, there are many hurdles waiting near the $7,400 and $7,460 levels. Besides, there is a short term declining channel forming with resistance near $7,380 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.Therefore, a clear break above the channel resistance and $7,460 is needed for a decent recovery wave. Once the price settles above $7,460 and the 100 hourly simple moving average, the bulls are likely to aim the $7,630 resistance area.Bitcoin Price Bitcoin PriceLooking at the chart, bitcoin price is currently declining and trading below the $7,300 level.
