BTC/USD 21/09/20 Hourly Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $10,937 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,095.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Sunday high $11,098 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $11,256 before any pullback.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $10,937 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,776 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,500 levels. The second major support level at $10,618 should limit any downside.
