Since the yearly high, the BTC price has decreased slightly and is trading inside a symmetrical triangle pattern. While the symmetrical triangle is considered a neutral pattern, it can act as a continuation since it transpires after an upward movement.
A successful breakout from the channel can cause a 7% increase to the next resistance at $36,530.

Despite this bullish Bitcoin prediction, a breakdown from the channel will likely cause an 8% drop to the closest support at $31,350.
MINA Falls Inside Bullish Pattern
The MINA price has decreased since reaching its yearly high of $0.96 on October 24. The decrease took the price below the $0.75 horizontal area. The price has traded inside a descending wedge pattern since.
MINA is approaching the end of the pattern, which coincides with the 0.618 Fib retracement support level at $0.59. Since the wedge is considered a bullish pattern, an eventual breakout from it is the most likely future price scenario.
If that happens, MINA can increase by 20% to the next resistance at $0.75.
