Bitcoin’s dominance in the market continues to skyrocket to new levels in 2019. Holding ground at 70.5% means that the granddaddy of cryptocurrencies makes up more than three-quarters of the entire crypto market capitalization.
In the last 24-hours, Bitcoin managed to hold on to at least 2% of the accrued gains. Its trading volume has almost doubled from September 1 at $11.45 billion to $19 billion at the time of press. Similarly, the market cap increased significantly from $174.76 billion to $189.85 billion in the same period.

Bitcoin stepped on the brakes after completing the leg above $10,700. The short-term resistance at $10,800 was tested but unconquered. The correction that followed has seen the price held hostage between strong support and resistance areas.

On the upside, correction above the first resistance at $10,669 is likely to pave the way for a remarkable move above $11,000. Further movement north will encounter resistance at $11,221 and $11,552.
