Bitcoin (BTC) has continued to correct itself after failing to fix above the $12,000 mark. Although the liquidity is still high, the buying trading volume has decreased, showing a lack of interest from the bulls to continue their rise in price. From a technical standpoint, the drop is not at an end and the decline may last until bears reach the $11,600 mark.

Looking at the weekly time frame, Bitcoin (BTC) is aiming towards the resistance at the $13,200 mark as the price has not decreased since breaking out from its long consolidation period. The trading volume is also at a relatively high level, which means that buyers may attain the aforementioned area despite possible corrections along the way.

At press time, Bitcoin was trading at $11,787.
