Bitcoin market update: BTC/USD double-bottom pattern propels price past $12,200

  • Bitcoin spikes above $12,000 for the first time in August in fresh gains.
  • Glancing higher, Bitcoin could easily blast through $13,000 if technicals remain positively intact.

Bitcoin skyrocketed to new monthly highs during the European session on Tuesday. Piercing $12,000 is strikingly impressive for an asset that plunged to lows close to $9,000 last month. The reliable support above $9,000 continues to give Bitcoin price strong legs to sit on.

In July the $9,000 support area tested twice. A formed double-bottom pattern gave the bullish momentum a mega boost first above $10,000 and later $11,000. The tight grip by the bulls saw Bitcoin price step above $11,500, which later saw the price action above the critical $12,000 level. Glancing higher, Bitcoin squeezed through $12,000 for the first time in August.
