Market Overview

Taking a look at the daily chart above, we can clearly see Bitcoin meeting resistance at the bearish .5 Fibonacci Retracement level yesterday priced at $6,542. This Fib Retracement is measured from the March high to the March low.

We can also see Bitcoin clearly trading within the ascending triangle as it struggled to break above resistance at $6,800.

Short term prediction: NEUTRAL

As Bitcoin trades within the triangle, we can consider the market to be neutral. If it breaks beneath the triangle then it would be bearish. 

Toward the downside, the first level of support lies at $6,100 which is provided by a short term .382 Fib Retracement. This is then followed with support at the lower boundary of the triangle and at $6,000.

Beneath $6,000, support lies at $5,785 (.5 Fib Retracement), $5,467 (.618 Fib Retracement), and $5,200.
