The 4-h chart shows the BTC/USD trading pair having revived the momentum above the 38.2% Fib retracement level taken between the last swing high of $13,868 and a swing low of $9,665. While the recovery had stalled under $12,500 in our previous coverage, Bitcoin is likely to correct higher in the afternoon (GMT) session on Tuesday.

The is also above the 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA) 4-h which makes a confluence with the 23.6% Fib retracement level. In case of a reversal, this confluence at $10,665 will function as key support preventing dips towards $10,000.

As after technical analysis is concerned, the correction under $10,000 was a temporary movement meant to create demand as per the analogy of pullback by Carter Worthwhile on CNBC’s ‘Fast Money’ segment. The Relative Strength Index (RSI), for instance, is comfortably above the average to show that consolidation above $11,000 is expected in the coming sessions. At the same time, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) upwards divergence proposes the continuation of momentum above $11,500.
