On the 1D chart, moving averages are indicating the upward trend as well as the presence of bulls on the market, that are keeping the price of the cryptocurrency within the Triangle model. In any case, the formation of such a model implies uncertainty until quotes go beyond the limits of the pattern. However, while prices are pushing from the lower border, it makes sense to talk only about an upward movement. The confirmation will be a breakdown of the nearest resistance level and fixing quotes above $11,000.

Bitcoin is trading at $10,365 at press time.


The chief altcoin has pushed off the resistance level and a decline to the level of $145 remains relevant. The moving averages have already crossed each other, indicating a resumption of the bearish momentum.
