Bitcoin and the entire crypto market are seeing some intense strength today, which has allowed the benchmark cryptocurrency to push towards $12,000 while altcoins like Ethereum begin garnering significant momentum.
The strength seen by Ethereum over the past couple of days has been so intense that some analysts are noting that it may be creating a tailwind that is helping to drive BTC higher.
Other analysts are also observing that BTC is seeing degrading resistance between its current price and $13,000 – which means that it may only be a matter of time before the crypto explodes higher.
This comes as the crypto’s two-month candle close nears, which will be the second-highest one in BTC’s history if bulls can hold it above its current price levels for the rest of the day.
Bitcoin to Post Second-Highest Monthly Candle Close Ever
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up marginally at its current price of $11,710. This is around the price at which it has been trading throughout the past several days and weeks.
The strong recovery it was able to post late-last week when it dipped to lows of $11,100 is a bullish sign for the digital asset.
One analyst recently pointed to the cryptocurrency’s two-month candles, noting that tonight’s close will be the second-highest one ever seen.
