The selloff has settled for now as BTC bounced and found support around 6,500 and its current immediate resistance is around 7,300. If price is able to break and hold above this current range, BTC might test towards the 7,500 - 8,000 level.

This was almost instantly debunked by Binance CEO, Changpeng 'CZ' Zhao.
