Bitcoin News

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up over 2% at its current price of $10900, which is around where it has been trading for the past few hours.

This is around where it faces strong resistance, with many analysts setting their sights on a move up towards $11,200 before it rejects and potentially plunges lower.

While speaking about this, one analyst explained that a rejection at this price region would be grim, whereas a break above it could lead to significantly further upside in the days and weeks ahead.

Bitcoin has seen some intense strength throughout the past several days, with the cryptocurrency marching from lows of $9,900 to highs of over $11,000 that were set today.

This strength is somewhat unique in that BTC is the only major cryptocurrency currently marching higher, as most others are stuck within consolidation phases or downtrends.
