BTC/USD – Daily Chart

On August 5, BTC/USD rebounded as price broke the $11,400 resistance. Incidentally, the king coin reached a high of $11,800. Unfortunately, that positive move was repelled to $11,600 low as price resumed another upward move. The bottom line is that Bitcoin bulls must break the $12,000 overhead resistance. Buyers are making the second attempt after the initial failure at the minor resistance. On the upside, a strong bounce above  $11,600 support will propel price to break the $11,800 and the momentum will extend to retest the overhead resistance.

The expectation is that once the $12,000 resistance is breached, Bitcoin is likely to explode on the upside. The next target for BTC will be the $13000 high. Unfortunately, if buyers fail to break the overhead resistance, BTC will encounter another breakdown. The king coin may drop to $10,500 and resume another consolidation. Meanwhile, BTC is at level 72 of the RSI period 14. The coin is in the bullish trend zone
