For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $11,366 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,586.
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 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $11,700 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $11,830.
Failure to move through the $11,366 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,122 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$11,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $10,902.
