As observed on the hourly chart, the price has charted a descending channel bullish breakout, as well anticipated here, opening doors for the pattern target at 10351. On its way towards the latter, the most favorite coin is likely to face stiff resistance at 9600 and further north at the 10000 psychological level. To add the hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trending higher above the midline (50), still below the overbought territory, suggesting the further scope of upside remains in play.

The retracement from higher levels could see the immediate cushioning at 9450, the horizontal 50-Hourly Simple Moving Average (HMA). A break below the latter could see at a test of the strong demand zone around 9420-9400, where the 21, 100-HMA and descending trendline resistance-now-turned support intersect. A failure to resist above the mentioned support area could trigger a fresh sell-off towards the key 200-HMA of 9195.17.
