Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 1.52% on Friday. Reversing a 0.20% gain from Thursday, Bitcoin ended the day at $11,580.0.
It was a mixed start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning intraday high $11,900 before hitting reverse.
Falling short of the first major resistance level at $11,914, Bitcoin slid to a late afternoon intraday low $11,326.
Bitcoin fell through the first major support level at $11,581 and the second major support level at $11,402.
Finding late support, however, Bitcoin broke back through the second major support level to end the day at $11,580.
The first major support level at $11,581 pinned Bitcoin back late in the day.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest move through to $11,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

Bitcoin Cash ABC was up by 0.22% to lead the way.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $11,600 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,878.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,800 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $11,900 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $12,176.
Failure to move through the $11,600 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,304 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$11,000 levels. The second major support level at $11,028 should limit any downside.
