It corrected below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $16,924 swing low to $17,895 high. However, the price remained well supported above the $17,500 level. It seems like there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $17,800 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

If there is a fresh break above the triangle resistance at $17,800, the price could rally further. The next major resistance is near the $18,000 level. Any further gains could open the doors for a rise towards the $18,400 level in the near term. An intermediate resistance sits near the $18,250 level.

Dips Supported in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the triangle resistance or $17,850, there could be a short-term downside correction. An initial support is near the triangle support at $17,580.

The next major support is near the $17,410 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $16,924 swing low to $17,895 high. Any further losses may perhaps lead the price towards the $17,200 support level.

Technical indicators:

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

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is currently correcting lower, but it is well above the 60 level.

Major Support Levels – $17,580, followed by $17,400.

Major Resistance Levels – $17,800, $17,850 and $18,000.
