Bitcoin Price Breakout Approaching
There were no major swing moves in Bitcoin price this past week against the US Dollar, as after a dip towards $885, the price started recovering. There was an upside move, which pushed the price back above the $900 resistance. The price moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $954 high to $885 low to start a recovery.
The best part was the close above the $900 resistance. The price also crawled above the $910 level. However, there is no major momentum, which could initiate a trending up-move. At the moment, the price is struggling near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $954 high to $885 low. Moreover, there is a major breakout pattern formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed from SimpleFX) of BTC/USD. Its resistance is coinciding with the $928 resistance.
So, a break and close above the triangle resistance and the mentioned fib level could spark more gains towards $950. On the downside, the triangle support is at $910. Going forward, we would witness a break. The chances are of a move higher, but if the price fails to break $928-930, it might move down.
