Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – August 17, 2020
BTC/USD has broken the $12,000 overhead resistance at the time of writing. Before now, BTC was range-bound between levels $11,700 and $11,900 as the market continued its consolidation.
Resistance Levels: $10,000, $11, 000, $12,000
Support Levels: $7,000, $6,000, $5,000
Today, Bitcoin has resumed its uptrend as price reaches a high of $12,200. For the past four days, buyers have been pushing price to $11,950 resistance. Each time price reaches the resistance zone, it will fall to the lower range to continue the sideways move. In essence, to break the $12,000 resistance, the bulls have to clear the resistance between levels $11950 to $12,050. The bullish scenario has been fulfilled as BTC continues its Journey to the first target at $13,000. Subsequently, the momentum will extend to $15,000 and above.
The breaking of the overhead resistance is seen as one of the strongest resistance. That is the reason a break above it will propel price to rally on the upside. Nonetheless, we have seen the bullish scenario when price breaks out. However, if the bulls fail to break the $12,000 resistance, the bears will break the $11,700, and the current upside range will be dismantled. The bears will push price to $11,100 or $11,250.
