The trend change is backed by a jump in trading volumes to levels last seen in May 2018. The rally, therefore, looks to have legs and December highs above $4,200 could come into play, albeit after a minor bout of consolidation or pullback, as the indicators on the 4-hour chart and daily charts are reporting overbought conditions. A break below Monday’s low of $3,614 would invalidate the bullish…

Bitcoin Price Passes $3,700 to Hit One-Month High

That said, a break above the upper edge of the triangle, currently located at $3,760, looks likely as an inverse head-and-shoulders breakout on the 4-hour chart has opened up upside toward $4,030 (target as per the measured height method). More importantly, the rally to one-month highs is backed by strong volumes…
