For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $11,522 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,861.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $12,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $12,314.
