Bitcoin was consolidating between $11,400 and $11,700

Today, Bitcoin has recovered from the downtrend as it found support above $11,400. BTC is trading marginally as it approaches the $11,800 resistance.

Initially, the coin was consolidating between $11,400 and $11,700 as buyers found it difficult to push above the $11,800 resistance. In the previous price action, the coin rebounded above $11,700 before breaking above the $11,800 resistance. A further upward move becomes possible if the bullish momentum is sustained. 

Analysts believe that the $12,000 resistance will be tough. Eventually, if buyers scale above it, the price movement will be accelerated. On the upside, buyers are expected to breach the resistance at $12,000 and $12,400 before attaining the first target price of $13,000. Thereafter, BTC will reach another high of $14,500. Today, BTC is hovering above $11,700 as the market pushes to the previous highs.
