An immediate resistance is near the $8,000 level or the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,475 swing high to $7,822 low. On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $8,100 and $8,200 levels. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $8,100 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair.
On the downside, the key support is near the $7,800 level. If there is a downside break below the $7,800 support, the price could continue to decline in the near term. The next major support is near the $7,500 level, below which there is a risk of more losses towards $7,200.
Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is clearly trading in a bearish zone below the $8,000 pivot level and the $8,200 resistance. Therefore, a convincing break above $8,000 and a follow through above $8,200 is required for a strong recovery. If not, the price is likely to test the $7,500 support area.
