Bitcoin technical outlook
Bitcoin continues to trade below the 20-day SMA, which is currently located near $11,700. The Fibonacci 23.6% retracement of the late-July to mid-August uptrend is strengthening this area as resistance. Above that level, $12,000 (psychological level) could be seen as the next significant hurdle and only a daily close beyond it could help Bitcoin gather bullish momentum.
Supports, on the other hand, align at $11,370 (August 22 low), $11,200 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement) and $10.850 (Fibonacci 50% retracement).
