Bitcoin will be facing the strongest resistance zone at the $12,000 high

Today, buyers are retesting the $12,000 resistance but have not sufficiently broken above it. The initial attempt at the resistance pushed BTC to $12,064 high.

The selling pressure is overwhelming as the price pulls back. Analysts have anticipated that BTC will be facing the strongest resistance zone at the $12,000 high.

That is, the $12,000 resistance will bring about an unprecedented rally. Bitcoin will surge higher to the $15,000 high. Today, buyers pushed above the resistance but could not sustain the upward move. Price pulled back above $11,700 to resume a fresh upward move. Nevertheless, if buyers fail to break the overhead resistance, the king coin will be compelled to an indefinite period of a sideways trend. Meanwhile, buyers are retesting the resistance to break it at the time of writing.
