Bitcoin

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap had a slow day, with its price being locked in a range bound by The $11,460 resistance and $11,090 support. Bitcoin continuously retested its immediate support, but the lack of volume and pressure towards the downside brought nothing to the BTC bears. Bitcoin’s downside is also guarded by the 50-period moving average, which is sitting right under $11,090.

BTC traders should look for an opportunity to make a trade when BTC breaks $11,460 or falls below $11,090.
