After having regained this week its Kijun h4 to $39,252the Bitcoin finally got rejected by the cloud ofIchimoku, leading to a new breakout of the Kijun. In this difficult context, the scenario of a break in the symmetric widening pattern of troughs from below is not to be excluded despite the rather bullish probability of breaking this type of pattern from above.

As a reminder, in case of breakage of its low trendlinethe price would most likely return towards the $34,000. In the opposite case, if the price nevertheless manages to return to its cloud on the upside, the hope of a return to the top of the pattern at $44,000 will be allowed.
