For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $11,540 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,996.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $11,800.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, the second major resistance level at $12,255 would come into play.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $11,540 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,280 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$11,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $10,825.
