Bitcoin Struggles at $13,000

The past seven days were nothing short of impressive for Bitcoin. After a brief dip to $11,400 last week, the cryptocurrency went on a roll. Promising news from PayPal only accelerated BTC’s bullish run, resulting in a fresh 2020 high painted a few days ago at $13,200.

Since then, Bitcoin has maintained a relatively robust position around the $13,000 mark. In the past 24 hours, the primary cryptocurrency has hovered around that particular level as well.

The only exception came a few hours ago when it tanked to $12,730 (on Bitstamp). However, the bulls quickly took charge and drove it back to the familiar ground.

From a technical standpoint, the new 2020 high of $13,200 is the first significant resistance in BTC’s way up. Should the asset break above it, the next ones are $13,400, $13,500, and $13,600.

Alternatively, Bitcoin could find support at $12,550, $12,400, $12,125, and $12,000 in case the recent trend reverses and BTC heads south.
