The 100 simple moving average is well above the longer-term 200 simple moving average to signal that the path of least resistance is heading north. This means there is still a chance of the digital currency to resume its upward movement and move back into the triangle pattern.

This is also close to the support of the broken triangle, which might serve as a hurdle from here. A move over this mark could lead to another test of the hurdle at the swing high.
