For the past few days, Bitcoin has been holding above the 20-day exponential moving average, which is equivalent to $11,137. It shows, the buyers bought the dip to the $11,165 support on Oct. 19. In fact, it suggests accumulation at lower levels.
Resistance at $11,719 could be hit by BTC if the price can be pushed by bulls up to the downtrend line. If the price could break out this level, it may continue to grow to its first target, which is $12,000 and the next one which is $12,460.
The relative strength index is also above 61. In addition, the both long-term and short-term moving averages are rising up. Consequently, it shows that the bulls are in control of the market.
But, if the pairs turn down from the down trend line and then drop below the 20-day EMA, then the above mentioned positive view will be invalidated. In this case, the price drops down and will continue to decrease until the next support at $10,500.
If we take a look at 4-hour chart, it formed a bearish descending triangle pattern. This pattern will complete a breakdown and close below $11,165. The target for this bearish pattern will be at $10,611.

However, a gradually upward moving of 20_EMA and the RSI in the positive zone will suggest a slight preference of the bulls.
