BTC/USD upside pressure
As you can see on the H4 chart, BTC/USD escaped from a down channel pattern which is seen as a bullish formation. It has dropped and retested the 41,967.50 support, developing a bullish engulfing pattern.
Now, it challenges the weekly pivot point (43,331.49). Jumping and stabilizing above it may signal potential further growth. Personally, I’ve drawn an uptrend line, so as long as it stays above it, BTC/USD could extend its growth.
BTC/USD could extend its growth if it closes and stabilizes above the weekly pivot point of 43,331.49. In the short term, it could develop an up channel as long as it stays above the uptrend line. The 45,750 and the descending pitchfork’s upper median line (uml) could be used as upside targets.
Only a new lower low, a bearish closure below 41,782.21 could invalidate an upside continuation.
