Bitcoin’s Major Support Level Turns a Hurdle Point

The first major hurdle of the coin is close to the $8,470 mark, the previous support level of the coin. Furthermore, the recently highlighted major bearish trendline is active with hurdles close to the $8,470 mark on the one-hour chart of Bitcoin (BTC) against the USD. Over that level, the next major hurdle is close to the $8,500 and $8,520 marks.

Those hurdle points coincide with the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $8,794 to the low of $8,263. As such, the price of the digital currency must break over the $8,470 and $8,520 resistance levels to move back into the bullish zone. If this happens, Bitcoin (BTC) might find its way back to the $8,800 hurdle point.

Can the $8,000 level Prevent More Losses?

If the price of Bitcoin continues to head south, it could struggle to remain over the $8,200 support level. If it breaks below that level, chances are it might plunge to the $8k support mark in the short-term. The world’s largest digital currency by market cap seems to be showing some bearish signs and it appears there is a formation of an interim top near the $9,200 mark.

If Bitcoin breaks below the $8k level, the next bearish target could be the $7,800 mark. Below that level, the bears might aim for the $7,200 mark. At the time of writing, the major support levels of the coin are near $8,200 and $8,000.
