  • Bitcoin (BTC) Price Watch: Bullish Break Above $4,000 Looming

[newsbtc.com] After a strong upward move above the $3,850 level, bitcoin price started consolidating gains against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair tested the $3,900 resistance on a couple occasions and later corrected lower. It declined below the $3,850 level, but downside were limited. The last swing low was formed at $3,831 before the price recovered above $3,840. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $3,892 high to $3,831 low.

However, the price is currently facing a strong resistance near the $3,880 and $3,890 levels. Besides, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $3,892 high to $3,831 low is acting as a resistance. More importantly, there is a symmetrical triangle pattern formed with resistance at $3,880 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, it seems like the pair is setting up for the next break, which could be above $3,880. If there is a successful close above $3,880 and $3,900, the price may surge higher towards the $4,000 resistance level.
