There were back-back to bullish candles above the $6,500 level and the price rallied past $6,700. During the rise, bulls surpassed a crucial contracting triangle with resistance at $6,480 on the same chart, opening the doors for a decent rally.

The recent high was formed at $6,771 and the price is currently consolidating gains above $6,700. An initial support is the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,327 low to $6,771 high.

If the price continues to move down, the previous resistance zone near the $6,620 level may act as a support. Below this, the next major support is $6,550 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,327 low to $6,771 high.

As long as the price is above the $6,550 level and the 100 SMA, there could be more gains above the $6,771 high in the near term. BTC buyers might attempt to push the price towards the $6,900 and $7,000 resistance levels.

Overall, the current price action is positive above $6,550 for bitcoin. There could be a few swing moves, but as long as bulls are active, there are high chances of a test of the $7,000 barrier in the near term. Above $7,000, the price could find resistance near $7,150.
