Earlier on the upward move has been made possible because of the holding of the three support zones of $11,100, $11,200, and $11,300 price levels. Today, BTC is trading at $11,970 at the time of writing. This final push to $12,000 overhead resistance was made possible because of the weakness of the US dollar.

Perhaps, BTC is likely to break the $12,000 overhead resistance convincingly.
