BTC/USD – Daily Chart

In the last 48 hours, buyers attempted to push BTC above the $12,000 resistance. The uptrend was short-lived as price was resisted at the $11,800 high. As price recoups above the $11,500 support, a strong bounce above the support will propel price to break the $11,800 and $12,000 resistance. Nevertheless, if the bulls are successful above the overhead resistance, further uptrend will unfold. BTC is rising as buyers make the third attempt at the overhead resistance.

However, the crypto currency is unpredictable. Sellers may take undue advantage to break the $11,000 support. This will propel price to sink BTC below $10,500. The king coin will be compelled to a sideways move between $10,000 and $10,500. Meanwhile, BTC is now trading at $11,600 at the time of writing. According to the RSI period 14, the king coin is in the uptrend zone and it is likely to rise.
