BTC Faces Obstacles
Bitcoin price initiated a short-term upward correction from the $ 11,100 support against the US Dollar. BTC recovered above the $ 11,200 and $ 11,400 levels, but faced strong resistance near the $ 11,500 level.

On the upside, the bulls are facing a major hurdle near the trend line, $ 11,500, $ 11,550 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. These are the main reasons why a successful close above the $ 11,550 level and the 100-hour SMA is necessary to increase the chances of a new increase.
The next major resistance, near the $ 11,700 level, above this Bitcoin could attempt an upward break above the $ 11,800 level in the near term. This could be considered the beginning of a rally according to other analysts.
