After reversing at the 200-days EMA, Bitcoin started to fall slightly to meet support at the .382 Fib Retracement level at $7,809, where a rebound was seen.
If the buyers can continue to rebound higher from the support at $7,809, immediate resistance above is expected at $8,051 (bearish .5 Fib Retracement) and at $8,150 (200-days EMA). Above this, resistance is located at $8,300 and $8,416 (bearish .618 Fib Retracement). Following this, resistance lies at $8,690 and $9,000.
