Currently, the market is consolidating above $8,500 support. At the same time, BTC/USD pair is trading below the resistance line of the ascending channel. On the upside, if price breaks the resistance level and closes above it, BTC will resume its uptrend. As the market fluctuates, there is the tendency of the bears breaking below $8,500 support.

Meanwhile, the upward move is expected as price attempts to push above the resistance line. Presently, Bitcoin is above 80% range of daily stochastic.
