For the week ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through $11,571 pivot to support a run the first major resistance level at $12,006.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from last week’s high $11,847.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and last week’s high would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a sell-off, expect support at $10,500 to be tested in the week.
