The BTC/USD bullish burst to the upside after breaking the triangle (dotted purple) is a classical example of a wave 3. The choppy price action after the momentum up always respected the 21 ema zone (as the blue SWAT candles indicate). The bullish breakout is the expected price movement of the chart pattern. Price is now on its way to the -27.2% Fibonacci target at 11,880 but an extension is also possible.

If price action does build any type of pullback, then the support zone (dark green box) is a very strong area. Price is expected to stay above it and use the zone for a bullish bounce. Most likely, any retracement would be shallow and an uptrend continuation is expected. Only a massive and major reversal would invalidate (red x) the current bullishness.
