There was a clear move above the $27,500 level and the 55 simple moving average (4 hours). The price even rallied above the $28,000 resistance zone. However, the bears were active near the $28,500 zone. A high was formed near $28,473 before there was a downside correction.

The price traded below $28,000 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $25,864 swing low to the $28,473 high. The price is now trading well above $27,200 and the 55 simple moving average (4 hours).

Immediate resistance on the upside is near the $28,000 level. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $28,000 on the 4-hour chart of the BTC/USD pair. The first major resistance is near the $28,500 level, above which the price could rise toward the $29,500 zone.

Any more gains might send the price toward the $30,000 zone. If there is no upside break, the price might start a downside correction below $27,500.

The next key support is near the $27,150 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $25,864 swing low to the $28,473 high. Any more losses might call for a move toward the $26,550 support zone.
