Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com It looks like a declining channel or bullish flag pattern is forming with resistance near $ 11,450 on the 4-hour chart of the BTC / USD pair. An immediate resistance is near the $ 11,420 level as it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $ 11,627 high to $ 11,200 low. To start a new rally, the price must break the $ 11,420 level and the channel resistance. The next key resistance is near the $ 11,500 level, above which the price could even break above the $ 11,600 and $ 11,700 level. Any further gains could push Bitcoin towards the $ 12,000 resistance level.
