    • BTC/EUR struggles at 100-DMA which is offering strong support on the downside.
       
    • The pair hit fresh 2-month lows at 7534 before paring losses to close above 100-DMA on Wednesday's trade.
       
    • Price action is extending consolidation phase after break below daily Ichimoku cloud, bias lower.
       
    • Break below 100-DMA is required for further weakness. Scope then for test of next major support at 78.6% Fib at 7244.
       
    • Momentum studies are bearish, Stoch are sharply lower. But are approaching oversold levels so caution advised.
       
    • RSI weak below 50 levels and biased lower with room for further downside. We see -ve DMI dominance, ADX is rising which supports current downtrend.
       
    • On the flipside, break above 5-DMA could see test of 20-DMA at 11684. 20-DMA breakout invalidates bearish bias.

    Support levels - 9032 (100-DMA), 7244 (78.6% Fib retrace of 4736 to 164557 rally), 6049 (200-DMA)

    Resistance levels - 10038 (5-DMA), 10596 (cloud base), 11685 (20-DMA), 12000, 13670 (Dec 27 high)
