Bitcoin technical outlook
Bitcoin is trading below the one-month-old ascending trade line for the third straight day on Saturday. Additionally, BTC/USD closed below the 20-day SMA for the first time since the beginning of that same uptrend. Unless Bitcoin reclaims $12,000, it could continue to push lower toward $11,200 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement of late-July to mid-August uptrend). Before that level, $11,370 (daily low) could act as interim support.
On the upside, near-term resistances could be seen at $11,700 (20-day SMA/Fibonacci 23.6% retracement) and $12,000 (psychological level).
