For the Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to hold above the second major resistance level at $12,417.67 to support another run at $13,000 levels.
While we can expect Bitcoin to face plenty of resistance at $13,000 levels, Bitcoin could take a run at the third major resistance level at $13,395.67.
Bitcoin would need support from the broader market, however, to break out from the morning high $12,945.0.
Failure to hold above the second major resistance level at $12,417.67 could see Bitcoin give up some of the morning gains.
A pullback through to $12,300 levels could see Bitcoin fall back through the first major resistance level at $12,077.33.
Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should avoid a return to sub-$12,000 levels on the day.
