This past week, bitcoin saw an increase in selling pressure below the $8,880 support area against the US Dollar. Moreover, BTC price settled below the $8,700 pivot level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

There were steady losses and the price broke the $8,600 and $8,500 support levels. A new monthly low is formed near $8,382 and the price is clearly trading in a bearish zone.

Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,777 high to $8,382 low is also near the $8,580 level.

If there is an upside break above the channel resistance, the price could test the $8,620 and $8,630 resistance levels. More importantly, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $8,630 on the same chart.

To move into a positive zone, the price must break the $8,700 and $8,720 levels. Having said that, a proper close above the $8,880 resistance is needed for a trend change and a fresh increase.
