For the past week, Bitcoin has been compelled to a sideways move because of buyers’ inability to break the $16,000 resistance. The king coin has been range-bound between $14,600 and $15,800. Today, the bulls have broken the $16,000 resistance. The bulls pushed on the upside in three phases before breaching the resistance.

As the bulls succeed, the coin is out of the range-bound zone. The king coin has a target price of $17,200. Meanwhile, Bitcoin has traded above the 80% range of the daily stochastic since October 10. That is the coin is in the overbought region of the market.
