The main question is whether BTC/USD has already completed its wave 4 (pink) or not. This will determine whether Bitcoin could offer more bearish pullback or a bullish breakout. Let’s review:

  • A bullish breakout above the resistance trend line (orange) followed by a bull flag chart pattern is increasing the odds of an immediate uptrend (green arrows).
  • A bearish bounce, however, could indicate an ABCDE triangle chart pattern (grey arrows) which is expected to break up (green arrows).
  • A bearish bounce could also create a larger retracement to the lower Fibonacci retracement levels like 50-618% Fibs. A bullish bounce is expected at this support (blue arrows).

The uptrend remains intact as long as price action remains above $20,000. A deeper push lower, however, would place the bulls under pressure (yellow and red circles).

On the 4 hour chart, price action needs to break below the 21 ema support zone to potentially start 5 bearish waves down (orange). This could complete a wave C (grey) of wave 4 (pink). The Fibonacci levels are expected to act as support (blue arrows). 

An immediate breakout could take place too (green arrows) above the bull flag chart pattern (orange and green lines). Although the Fibonacci resistance could spark a downside momentum as well (red arrow). 

Price patterns remain key after any breakout to confirm the breakout direction or indicate a false breakout.

The main target for the upside is currently around the $50,000 round level.
