BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Certainly, Bitcoin is making progress after it moved from $7,115 to $7,243. Buyers are sustaining the upward move but will face the $7,200 resistance. The crypto has reached a resistance zone which it must overcome to move upward to face larger resistance at $7,500. In the meantime, the bulls are contesting to cross above the $7,200 resistance. The coin will move to $7,500 if successful above the initial resistance. However, a bearish rising wedge pattern is formed in the downtrend. The implication is that Bitcoin will fall to continue the downtrend.

At the moment the market has not experienced any downward move. On the upside, if the bulls crossed the initial resistance at $7,200, the bears may present resistance at the $7,400. BTC will resume uptrend if it overcomes the $7,400 resistance. Then we should expect the momentum to increase to $8,000 which is our first target. Conversely, if the bulls fail to overcome the $7,200 and $7,400 levels, Bitcoin will resume a fresh decline. Meanwhile, BTC is above 50% range of the daily stochastic. This indicates that the market is in a bullish momentum.
