For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $11,468 to bring the first major resistance level at $11,570 back into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $11,550.0.

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 sits at $11,623.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $11,468 pivot would bring the first major support level at $11,415 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$11,400 support levels. The second major support level sits at $11,313.
