There was no stopping buyers as bitcoin price traded above the $8100 level and formed another new all-time high at $8359 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair is currently consolidating above the $8100 level and is preparing for the next move.
The pair started a downside correction and moved below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $7800 low to $8359 high. However, the downside move was limited by the $8000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $7800 low to $8359 high prevented declines. It seems like a correction is over around $8000 and the price might resume its uptrend soon.
