BTC/USD – Daily Chart

Following the retest at the $12, 0000 overhead resistance, BTC/USD has fallen and resumed a downward move. It is currently fluctuating between $11,600 and $12,000 as price tests the resistance zone. On the upside, if the BTC clears the $11,700 to $12,000 resistance zone, the king coin will make a strong move to the $15,000 price levels.

Earlier on the upward move has been made possible because of the holding of the three support zones of $11,100, $11,200, and $11,300 price levels. Today, BTC is trading at $11,970 at the time of writing. This final push to $12,000 overhead resistance was made possible because of the weakness of the US dollar. There has been a correlation between Bitcoin and the U.S. Dollar Currency Index (DXY) which has dropped substantially. Bitcoin tends to rise when the US dollar falls. Perhaps, BTC is likely to break the $12,000 overhead resistance convincingly.
