Bitcoin (BTC) Price Prediction – August 12, 2020
Yesterday, BTC/USD dropped to $11,123 as the downtrend subsided. This will be the second time BTC will be facing rejection at the $12,000 overhead resistance. Each time there is a rejection at the overhead resistance, the market will fall within the price range of $11,000 and $12,000.
Resistance Levels: $10,000, $11, 000, $12,000
Support Levels: $7,000, $6,000, $5,000
Before the second rejection at the $12,000 overhead resistance, the market has been consolidating between $11,000 and $12000. At other times the consolidation reduces to a tight range between $11600 and $12,000. With a tight consolidation near the resistance, sellers will not have the opportunity to push BTC down to the lower price range. Besides, there will be a bullish continuation as breakout can easily occur above the resistance. Yesterday BTC dropped to $11,200 as price made an upward correction. Technically, BTC uptrend is intact as price does not fall below the $10,400 support.
Today, BTC is rebounding above the $11,200 as the king coin resumes a fresh uptrend. The price is approaching the $11,600 high. On the upside, if BTC makes a strong bounce above $11,600, the $12,000 resistance will be breached. The momentum will continue as the coin resumes a fresh uptrend above the resistance. The market will continue its range bound movement if the third attempt at the resistance fails. Nevertheless, Bitcoin will rise as it is at level 60 of the Relative Strength Index period 14.
