Breaking through the $11,500-$11,800 range was the bulls most significant achievement of the last week and a number of analysts have noted that above the $12,000 level there is little overhead resistance.

This has led some traders to forecast a swift move to the $14,000-$15,000 level.

In a previous analysis, Cointelegraph contributor Micheal van de Poppe said that:

“The $11,500-11,800 resistance area is an ancient and substantial area on the charts. Not only did this level serve as resistance throughout the summer of 2019, but it also acted as resistance during the peak mania of December 2017.”

This most recent move to $11,965 broke through this ‘ancient’ range and according to van de Poppe once “the price of Bitcoin breaks through this zone, then there is a lot of open range above and a new bull market will be upon us.”

Ethereum price hits a 2-year high

As Bitcoin price moved to a new 2020 high, Ether (ETH) price rallied to a 2-year high at $399 on Binance exchange.

Since July 18 the Ether has rallied more than 70% and analysts believe the altcoin could see further upside as the DeFi sector continues to grow, Bitcoin rallies higher, and the ETH 2.0 upgrade is expected to occur soon.

According to CoinMarketCap, the overall cryptocurrency market cap now stands at $357.3 billion. Bitcoin’s dominance index currently at 61.3%.
