BTC/USD 14/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $11,450 to bring the first major resistance level at $11,567 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 Tuesday’s high $11,574.9 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $11,700 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $11,692.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $11,450 pivot would bring the first major support level at $11,325 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$11,200 levels. The second major support level at $11,208 should limit any downside.
