Bitcoin market stance

At the time of writing, the flagship cryptocurrency is continuing to trade in a range, exchanging hands at $9,303.

Bitcoin has been stuck in this trading range since its recovery from under the $9,000 level on June 15, after briefly hitting $8,999, according to figures from CoinMarketCap.

Analysts, however, remain bullish and expect BTC to skyrocket towards $11,500, provided that Bitcoin holds in the $9,300 zone.
