Bitcoin Price Analysis
In the past few days, there was a strong upward move in bitcoin price above the $6,500 resistance against the US Dollar. BTC even settled nicely above the $7,000 barrier and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).
The upward move was such that the price traded to a new monthly high at $7,471. Recently, there was a downside correction below the $7,300 level. The price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $6,687 low to $7,471 high.
However, the decline was well protected by the $7,080-$7,090 zone. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $6,687 low to $7,471 high acted as a strong support.

A successful break above the $7,471 high might open the doors for a larger upward move above $7,500. In the mentioned case, the price may perhaps rally towards the $7,880 and $8,000 resistance levels in the near term.
