International consortium of news organizations developing transparency standards.

Bitcoin price has been strengthening since January 12, consolidating inside a symmetrical triangle above $ 36,000.

Bitcoin keeps going north

Course bitcoin (BTC) rebounded on January 11 from the support represented by the 0.382 Fib level at $ 32,124. Since then, the price has been rising. This rally looks erratic and slow and looks more like a correction than a bullish momentum.

Despite the hidden bullish divergence in the RSI, the remaining technical indicators on the daily chart are giving bearish signals. Stochastic Oscillator has formed a bearish crossover, and MACD is almost in the red zone.

If BTC makes a bearish breakout, the next support will meet it at $ 29,080 (Fib 0.5 retracement).

Symmetrical triangle

On the 6-hour chart, the BTC rate has been trading within a symmetrical triangle since January 4. The point of convergence of the resistance and support lines is getting closer, so in the near future the market will have to make an important decision regarding the further direction of movement.

Strong resistance is marked at $ 37,709 (Fibo 0.618 retracement level, horizontal resistance and descending triangle resistance line).

Technical indicators on the short-term chart are bullish, however bearish signals on longer timeframes prevent us from predicting a bullish breakout with confidence..

Wave analysis

The results of the wave analysis suggest that the BTC rate is trading within the complex W-X-Y correction (orange on the chart), in which wave X is represented by a triangle. This is in line with the results of a longer-term analysis, which suggests that BTC is correcting growth that began in September 2020..

A bearish breakout of the triangle could push the market back to the aforementioned 0.5 Fibo level at $ 29,000 and possibly to 0.618 Fibo support at $ 26,000. 

Underwave analysis is shown in black on the chart. Absorption of the low of wave B at $ 33,822 will confirm our assumptions.

Since there is almost no doubt about the presence of a triangle on the chart, the only other probability remains that this is the fourth wave, which will be broken in the north direction, which will push BTC in the direction of $ 50,000.

However, this is at odds with the results of long-term analysis. Until we see the absorption of the high of the B sub-wave at $ 40 112, we will consider this scenario unlikely..
