Bitcoin (BTC) opened the markets today at $10,947, which is currently the low of the day. This was followed by a rise in the market price, with the crypto gaining 0.4 percent in value at the time of writing. The king of cryptocurrency tries his luck again today to break through the $11,000 resistance that has been so highly speculated. As the bearish activity of early September eases, bullish momentum finds support levels while BTC price attempts – once again – to break through that undeniably provocative $11,000 value and reach the other side.
BTC/USD daily chart analysis
Bitcoin has been on a steady recuperation from the initial drop that began September. Since this point, BTC price has displayed a bullish ascending trendline as it attempts to push through the $11,000 resistance level. The daily chart (above) shows September 4th through to the 10th developing a support level for Bitcoin.
BTC price bullish momentum continues and sits at $10,988 on the daily chart as it unyieldingly reaches beyond $11,000. The support level seen is followed by a steady rising ABC pattern as bullish movement is infrequently broken up by bearish moments.
Technical indicators on the daily chart portray steady price development moving away from the lower Bollinger Bands (BBs) value of $9,618 towards the higher BBs value of $11,814. If this rising ABC pattern continues, we may see Bitcoin break and find support levels on the other side of $11,000.
The MACD indicator continues to show BTC price rising from the bearish movement of September 3rd as bullish activity remains progressive.

The BTC price presses on toward $11,000, and despite receiving bearish pushback, the value still proceeds with bullish activity.
