For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $11,361 to bring the first major resistance level at $11,511 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $11,547.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $11,600 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $11,696.
Failure to move through the $11,361 pivot would bring the first major support level at $11,176 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $11,026.
