It seems like there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $41,200 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the triangle resistance and $41,500, the price is likely to resume its upward move.
An initial resistance is near the $42,068 high, above which the price is likely to gain 5%-8%. In the stated cases, the $45,000 level could be an easy target for the bulls. Any more gains might open the doors for a push towards the $50,000 zone.
