For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $11,482 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,840.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,800 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $11,500 would leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye $12,000 levels before any pullback.

Failure to move through the $11,482 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,020 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$11,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $10,662.
