This pattern is characterized by a sharp price movement in one direction, followed by a period of consolidation, and a sudden spike in the other direction, something that has been observed in BTC markets repeatedly. According to the chart, the pattern has already marked a sharp rise, followed by a consolidating price and has begun its descent to test the support at $7,885.82. This support has been tested before on five different occasions by BTC and thus, it is likely that the coin might breach this support and fall further.
