Now, one prominent analyst is noting that many altcoins that have faced severe technical damage from their recent drop may experience a relief rally in the near-term, as long as Bitcoin is able to hold steady around its current price levels.
Bitcoin Faces Strong Selling Pressure, But Holds Above Support at $11,000
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down roughly 1% at its current price of $11,600, which is up slightly from its 24-hour lows of roughly $11,100.
BTC’s ability to hold above the $11,000 level is certainly positive news for the cryptocurrency’s bulls, as it signals that there is some buying pressure around its current price levels that is preventing it from plummeting towards $10,000, which remains a key psychological price level that must be held above in the near term.
While looking at Bitcoin’s micro price action , it is important that the crypto continues holding above $11,100 during the day ahead, and bulls may regain their control if it surges past $12,500.
Josh Rager, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, spoke about the aforementioned price levels in a recent tweet, noting that a break above $12,500 would flip his bias bullish.
“$BTC – 15Min Chart: Struggling to break above $11,760 with the decreasing volume setting up for more volatility (BBands squeezing on lower time frame). Any move and close below $11,138 would be bearish on LTF and for me to get absolutely bullish, I want price above $12,500,” he explained.
