The buyers took advantage of the lower price to increase their positions. As a result, Bitcoin launched an assault on higher levels above $10,000. Besides, the break out of the descending channel saw the bull’s confidence in the price shoot up. In turn, Bitcoin got a mega boost past $11,000 and the recent break breach above $12,000.

At press time, a shallow recovery has revived the upward trend above the trendline. Bitcoin is exchanging hands at $11,723 but the main focus is on $12,000.
