Yesterday, we saw positive moves in bitcoin and discussed chances of an upside break above $12,000 against the US Dollar. BTC did gain momentum and surpassed the $11,850 resistance.

It seems like there is a key bullish flag pattern forming with resistance near $12,380 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The main support is now forming near the $12,120 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $11,785 swing low to $12,479 high.

On the upside, the price could start a fresh rally if it clears the flag resistance and the $12,400 level. An immediate resistance is near the $12,500 level. A successful close above the $12,500 level might open the doors for a sharp rise towards the $13,000 level in the near term.

Dips Supported in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $12,400 resistance, there might be a downside correction. The first major hurdle for the bears is seen near the $12,100 level.

The key support and a possible buy zone could be near the $12,000 level (the recent breakout zone), below which the price might decline towards the $11,900 level or the 100 hourly SMA.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is slowly losing pace in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is currently correcting lower towards the 50 level.

Major Support Levels – $12,120, followed by $12,000.
