Bitcoin Price is Consolidating Gains

It seems like there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $18,800 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the triangle resistance, the price could start a fresh rally in the coming sessions.

The next immediate resistance is near the $19,000 level. A proper close above the $19,000 level might open the doors for a larger increase towards the $19,400 and $19,550 levels.

Downside Correction in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $18,800 resistance, it could correct lower. The first key support is near the triangle lower trend line and $18,400.

The next major support is near the $18,000 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $17,344 swing low to $18,853 high. Any further losses may perhaps lead the price back towards the $17,350 support zone in the coming days.
