After breaking over that level, the digital currency surged over the $8k resistance and settled over the 100-day simple moving average. The recent rally was delayed close to the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $10,564 to the low of $6,449. Nevertheless, bullish breaks over the trendline, the current price action, and the 100-day simple moving average indicate that the bulls are getting ready for the next rally over the $8,500 resistance level.

The next major hurdle of the digital currency is close to the $9k and $9,100 resistance levels. The 61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement of the previous swing from the high of $10,564 to the low of $6,449 is also close to the $9k level. If Bitcoin (BTC) continues to surge higher and breaks over the $9,100 resistance level, chances are it would run towards the $10k resistance level.

Bitcoin (BTC) Finds a New Strong Support

In the near term, the digital currency might experience a little downward correction. If this happens, the immediate resistance of the coin is at the $8,300 mark. However, the major support of the digital currency is close to the $8k level or the 100-day simple moving average, which was the recent breakout zone.

If the digital currency breaks below that level, it might plunge towards the $7,500 support zone. Looking at the chart, the price of the digital currency is showing a lot of positive signs over the $8k level and the 100-day simple moving average. Provided the digital currency does not plunge below the 100 simple moving average by the end of the day, there is a high possibility of a strong upward move towards the $10k hurdle point. The immediate hurdle of the coin is at the $8,500 level, and a break over this level is needed for more gains.
