For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $11,356 to bring the first major resistance level at $11,437 back into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $11,418.0.

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

In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $11,499.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $11,356 pivot would bring the first major support level at $11,294 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$11,200 levels. The second major support level at $11,213 should limit any downside.
