10:36After $1,200 Surge, Bitcoin Faces Down a Pivotal Resistance Level
Bitcoin has seen an absurd bout of price action over the past few days. The leading cryptocurrency, after falling to $11,200 last week, surged as high as $13,250 on leading exchanges on Wednesday. The coin has since whipsawed since hitting those highs, dropping and rallying by hundreds of dollars below that high as investors gauge the direction of BTC.

Bitcoin Faces Down a Pivotal Resistance Level
Bitcoin is facing down a pivotal resistance level after the aforementioned price surge.

It notes that while Bitcoin is passing the crucial resistance at $12,000, it remains to be seen if it can pass and hold above the resistance in the $13,000 region, marked as “SUPPLY” on the chart:

$13,000 is pivotal for bulls because this is where the cryptocurrency began its blow-off top in the middle of 2019. Over the span of a few hours last year, the price of BTC teleported from the $12,000 to $13,000 range to $14,000, shocking most investors and leading some to think that a full-blown bull run was imminent. But Bitcoin rejected from $14,000, then $13,000 later that summer in confirmation of that region’s technical importance.
