For the past three days, the bullish momentum has subsided as price fluctuates between $8,500 and $9,500. Currently, the market is consolidating above $8,500 support. At the same time, BTC/USD pair  is trading below the resistance line of the ascending channel. On the upside, if price breaks the resistance level and closes above it, BTC will resume its uptrend. As the market fluctuates, there is the tendency of the bears breaking below $8,500 support.

The coin will find support above $8,000, once the $8,500 cracks. Nonetheless, if price falls to $8,000 support the bulls will aggressively defend it. Meanwhile, the upward move is expected as price attempts to push above the resistance line. Presently, Bitcoin is above 80% range of daily stochastic.
