Future Movement

The two-hour chart is also bullish.

First, it shows that BTC has already broken out from a descending resistance line, which was the catalyst for the most recent upward movement.

Furthermore, BTC moved above the $27,800 resistance area after and validated it as support (shown with the green arrow below).

Similar to the daily time-frame, technical indicators are also bullish, supporting the possibility that BTC resumes its upward movement.
