Bitcoin encountered a bearish reaction after reaching a high of $12,097

For the past 48 hours, Bitcoin is consolidating above $11,000 support after a sudden crash. On Sunday, August 2, buyers pushed BTC above $12,000 high.

The king coin encountered a bearish reaction after reaching a high of $12,097. The crypto plunged to a $10,548 low. Immediately, BTC pulled back above $11,000. Buyers are making another attempt to push prices to the previous highs. BTC is being repelled at the $11,400 high as the coin resumed a sideways move below the recent high.

Today, the market is consolidating between $11, 000, and $11,400. Analysts have it that liquidity tends to drop during the weekend as there are few traders in the market. In other words, low volumes are responsible for massive price movement. The recent breakdown enables BTC to find support above the EMAs. Therefore, BTC has another chance to resume a fresh uptrend. A retest at the $12,000 is possible if the price breaks the $11,400 resistance.

A correction candle body tested 0.786 Fibonacci retracement level. It indicates that the price will rise to 1.272 Fibonacci extension level.
