BTC/USD: Can traders expect a false breakout of the $11,000 mark?

Yesterday, buyers managed to pierce the daily EMA55 and set a weekly high around $10,940. However, sellers paused the recovery in the Bitcoin (BTC) price and did not allow the pair to gain a foothold above the level of $10,800.

Today, the rollback from the daily moving average EMA55 is not over yet. During the day, the pair may decline to the support of $10,500. If this level stops sellers, the attempt to break through the daily average price level will be repeated and the maximum is expected in the resistance area of $11,200.

On the hourly chart, Bitcoin (BTC) keeps trading within the rising channel formed a few days ago. The trading volume remains high, however, liquidity is decreasing, which means that a reversal will start soon.

The endpoint of the growth might be the “mirror” level at $11,150, where bears may seize the initiative.

However, on the 4H time frame, the picture is bearish. The rise of Bitcoin (BTC) from $10,500 has not been supported by a rising trading volume, which means bulls are unlikely to update local peaks. Applying the Bollinger Bands indicator on the chart, a decline from around $11,000 may end at $10,500, where most of the liquidity is focused. Such price action is relevant through the end of the week.

Bitcoin is trading at $10,942 at press time.
