  • There is now a chart pattern emerging on the hourly chart.

BTC/USD 1-hour chart

Bitcoin has now consolidated above the 5K level after a bounce off recent lows. This is typical after any massive fall and traders must be careful that this move higher could be a dead cat bounce. If this is the case the base low is now the key support zone on the chart and must be watched. On the higher timeframes the BTC/USD pair is still in a strong downtrend so buyers need to be careful.

Looking closer at the chart now, a triangle formation has now been established. Soon price will either breakout or meet the apex. A break in either direction could indicate the price may hit the red target zones. On the topside, 6K is the resistance zone and on the downside 3,858.00 is the support.
