BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Yesterday, the bulls broke the resistance of the range-bound zone and resumed the upward move. The current uptrend is facing a barrier as the bulls find penetration difficult at the $11,500 resistance zone. On October 16, the king coin was repelled as it plunged to $11,200 support after an unsuccessful attempt to break the $11,500 resistance zone. Buyers are recouping again to retest the $11,500 resistance.

On the upside, a break above the resistance zone will propel BTC to pick up momentum to resume a fresh uptrend. Nevertheless, the bulls have retested the current resistance zone on three occasions but without a breakthrough. Usually, a resistance level becomes weaker after several retests. Eventually, if the bulls break the resistance zone, BTC will have an accelerated price movement on the upside. The coin will rally above the $11,800 resistance. Subsequently, the $12,000 overhead resistance will be retested or broken. The momentum will extend to the $12,400 resistance. However, if BTC price turns down from the overhead resistance, Bitcoin will be compelled to another range bound movement.
