BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Since August 1, Bitcoin bulls commenced the upside range trading to break the $12,000 overhead resistance. For over two weeks, the bulls have failed to break the overhead resistance. From the price action, the bulls have broken the  resistance twice but were repelled. For the breakout to be successful, buyers must clear the resistance levels of $11,950 and $12,050. Simultaneously, the momentum should be sustained. Buyers have been facing rejection at the $12,000 overhead resistance because they failed to clear the resistance zone and sustain the upward momentum. The market is trading at the edge of the breakout point. A bearish reaction will follow if the bulls fail to break the resistance. The market will drop to previous support levels.

Bitcoin Trades beneath Key Resistance and Above Exponential Moving Averages
For the past two weeks, buyers have been consistently trading below the overhead resistance. At most times, price will be fluctuating between levels $11,800 and $12,000. This is creating an environment for a possible breakout. Nevertheless, Bitcoin bulls have been trading above the EMAs which indicate the upward move of BTC. However, if the bears have succeeded to break below the EMAs the market will fall.

Nonetheless, the Fibonacci reading remains the same as we await breakout possibility. Today, price has been trading at a striking distance. Once price breaks the $12,000 resistance, the market will rise to 4.236 Fibonacci extension level. Firstly, BTC will rally to its first target at the $13,000 high.
