Bitcoin, BTC to USD, rose by 0.68% on Sunday. Following on from a 2.14% rally on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week up by 6.53% to $11,385.0.

BTC/USD 12/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $11,372 to bring the first major resistance level at $11,464 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,400 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Sunday’s high $11,451 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $11,500 and the second major resistance level at $11,543.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $11,372 pivot would bring the first major support level at $11,293 into play.

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