Support Levels: $11,000, $10,800, $10,600
BTCUSD – Daily ChartBTC/USD is trading at $11,805 after a significant rejection from $12,409 a few days ago. Bears have not gotten a lot of continuation just yet as Bitcoin is seeing some support from the daily below the 9-day moving average at $11,733. More so, Bitcoin bulls are hoping to defend the daily 9-day MA and to bounce back up above $12,000.
Would Bitcoin (BTC) Go up or Down?
In spite of the hurdle at $11,800 and the on-going rebounds, all is not lost for the bulls because the technical indicator is holding within the positive region and the signal line is about to cross above the 60-level once again. Besides, bulls have eyes on the prize at $12,000 and, therefore, will not relent in the push for gains above this crucial level.
However, the Bitcoin bulls need to see a strong move and continuation towards the crucial resistance level of $12,000 to be confident in the short-term. The last low of the daily uptrend is $11,733, which could act as a support level. On the other hand, if the daily price closes above $12,200, a movement to $12,600, $12,800, and $13,000 resistance levels may likely come into focus, else the coin might drop below the moving averages to see the critical supports at $11,000, $10,800, and $10,600 respectively.

BTCUSD – 4 Hour ChartIf the buyers could put more effort, they can further push the price above the moving averages.

More so, the RSI (14) is seen recovery above 45-level, any bearish movements may drag the coin to the supports at $11,400 and below.
