All focuses are now placed on the Bitcoin bulls, as the asset has been moving in an uptrend from the lows of December 30 and according to the graph H1, cryptocurrency is consolidating above the 200-hour moving average.

However, if the bulls gain momentum in the next few hours, the next target would be at the Fibonacci level of 78.6% at 17,916.70.
