The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported by the latest move through to $12,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $11,812 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $11,947.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $11,900 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $11,894.5 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $12,029 before any pullback.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $11,812 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $11,729 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid the second major support level at $11,594.
