For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $11,694 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,866.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $11,796.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $11,967.
A fall through the $11,694 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,593 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$11,400 support levels. The second major support level at $11,421 should limit the downside.
