- Bitcoin appears to have bottomed out, giving way for gains towards $12,000.
- The on-chain analysis shows the absence of tough resistance heading to $12,000.
The flagship cryptocurrency eventually broke out above the stubborn resistance at $11,000. The impressive weekend gains extended to $11,500. However, the tremendous bullish pressure appears to have taken a pit stop in the range between $11,200 and $11,500.

BTC/USD 4-hour chart

IntoTheBlock IOMAP model highlights decreasing resistance for the bellwether cryptocurrency. In other words, Bitcoin is likely to close the remaining gap towards $12,000. In the meantime, the hurdle at $11,393 – $11,722 must come out of the way. The seller congestion in this zone is brought about by the 1 million addresses that previously bought 648,000 BTC. Gains above this range pave the way for the ultimate rally beyond $12,000.
