Bitcoin Breaks $12,000

In the past few days, there was a strong increase in bitcoin, Ethereum and ripple against the US Dollar. BTC even settled above the $11,200 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

To start the increase, there was a break above a crucial contracting triangle with resistance near $11,260 on the 4-hours chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair is currently trading in a nice uptrend, with an immediate support near the $11,800 level.

The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $11,249 swing low to $12,000 high is also near the $11,800 zone. The main support is now forming near the $11,600 level and a connecting bullish trend line on the same chart.

On the upside, a successful daily close above the $12,000 level may perhaps open the doors for a sharp increase above the $12,200 and $12,400 levels in the coming sessions. The next major resistance could be $12,800.

Dips Could Be Limited in BTC

If bitcoin starts a downside correction, it is likely to find buyers near $11,800 or $11,600. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent surge from the $11,249 swing low to $12,000 high is also near $11,614.

A downside break below the $11,600 and $11,500 support levels may perhaps open the doors for a larger decline towards the $11,200 support zone.
