BTC/USD Daily Chart
On the daily chart, Bitcoin is currently squeezed in between heavy resistance ($11,000) and a healthy stack of support ($10,500-$ 10,200). While the most key price level on the daily chart is the $10,000 support level. The $10,000 mark was the most significant aspect of resistance before it was suddenly breached during mid-year. Vigorous levels of resistance more often than not transform into high levels of support, as we’ve seen.
If that support zone cracks at $10,000, descent towards the lows are probable. Another failure, nevertheless, may raise the likelihood of a more corrective leap toward the level of $12,000. A possible rally towards $11,500 is probable from an entirely technical standpoint, after which a rejection or support and resistance shift may push the momentum uphill.
