$12K Bitcoin price back on the table after BTC rallies above $11.4K

On Friday (BTC) price finally managed to break above the symmetrical triangle where the price had been compressing for the last 30 days. After holding the $11,000 level into the daily close, the price rallied to $11,448 on multiple high volume surges.

On Oct. 8 Cointelegraph contributor Micheal van de Poppe explained that in his view:

Currently the price is holding above $11,400 and meeting resistance at $11,489 which is right at the top of the Sept. 3 candle which saw BTC drop 13% to $9,960. This level aligns with the VPVR node extending from $11,400-$11,740, but if the bulls are able to push through this resistance cluster another run at the $12K mark is on the cards.

On the daily timeframe, the relative strength index has risen to 65, a bullish signal, and the MACD histogram clearly reflects the current bump in momentum.

As is always the case, day traders should keep a close eye on volume as the lack of it during the last 30-days is the primary reason for Bitcoin price being flat and pinned below $11,000.

Ether (ETH) price also took a bullish turn, by piercing a key descending trendline to rally 3.08% to $378.

At the time of writing the top altcoin is encountering resistance at $375 where there is a high volume VPVR node extending from $376-$389. If bulls are able to maintain the current momentum and push through this resistance zone, Ether price could run to $419.

According to CoinMarketCap, the overall market cap now stands at $361.5 billion and Bitcoin’s dominance index is currently at 58.4%.
