Bitcoin price prediction: BTC/USD faces the brick wall at $11,500  - Bitcoin confluence

  • BTC/USD is hovering above $11,000 amid the recovery pattern.
  • The next critical support awaits BTC bulls on approach to $11,500.

Bitcoin (BTC) recovered from the recent lows and settled well below $11,000 handle; however, the bull bumped into a brick wall on the approach to $11,500 as the upside momentum has faded away. The first digital coin has gained nearly 10% in recent 24 hours, breaking-off four-day long decline.
