Bitcoin price prediction
The sustained move above the $11,000 price level has enhanced bitcoin’s point of view and gave traders hope that it is prepared to achieve its bullishness. More than 1.5 million bitcoin addresses containing more than $1 million in BTC provide a defensive wall against a breakdown below the robust $11,000 support.
There is a crucial ascending trendline shaping up anchored near $11,320 support. If the bulls can sustain the bullishness, bitcoin price could continue rising above the $11,450 support towards $11,500. The next critical selling pressure is located near the $11,700 price level. Further resistance lies beyond $12,000 and $12,200 if the buyers can carry on with the momentum.
On the contrary, the cryptocurrency is currently supported by the $11,320 price level. If the bears hold off the bulls, further support is provided by the $11,240 price level. Breaching the critical support might lead to a sharp decline, which would be disastrous for the buyers.
The good thing is that there are more than 1 million addresses with over 600,000 BTC located near the $11,500 price level. Furthermore, above this level, there is minimal selling pressure.
Furthermore, the weakening U.S. dollar implies that the top cryptocurrency is poised for further gains. People are losing confidence in the world’s reserve currency due to the unfavorable monetary policy and the U.S. central bank printing more dollars to alleviate the economic crisis created by the coronavirus pandemic.
The vast depreciation of the U.S. dollar happens when the risk of inflation is at its peak. This brings BTC into the spotlight as the safe-haven asset, the same as gold. However, bitcoin’s decentralized nature protects it from being manipulated and exploited.Disclaimer. The information provided is not trading advice.
