If there is an upside break above the triangle resistance and $19,000, the price could rally sharply. The next major resistance is near the $19,500 level, above which the bulls might attempt an upside break above the $19,800 and $19,850 levels. The next major resistance sits near the $20,000 level.
Another Failure in BTC?

If bitcoin fails to clear the $18,900 and $19,000 resistance levels, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support is near the $18,500 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

The first major support below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) is near the triangle lower trend line at $18,000. A close below the triangle support zone could open the doors for a fresh slide towards the $17,500 support zone in the near term.
