Technical Market Overview:
The BTC/USD pair has been rallying higher towards the level of technical resistance located at $7,464 after the Bullish Engulfing pattern was made around the level of $6,789. If the rally persists, then the next target for bulls is seen at the level of $7,601 or $7,710. Nevertheless, the Bitcoin is still trading inside of a narrow range located between the levels of $6,345 – $7,601 and all these inside movements are not as valid and strong as a breakout move. The larger timeframe trend remains down and there are no signals of any trend reversal just yet.
