The bitcoin price set an intraday top of $12,064 on Coinbase. After that, the price slipped by more than 3.5 percent, indicating the presence of bears around the area. That makes the $12,000 level a psychological barrier for bitcoin, before it begins in the upwards direction to reclaim the 2019 high of $13,868.44.

From the intraday perspective, bitcoin is currently testing the $11,771.02 level as interim resistance, with extendability towards the $12,000 level, as stated above. At the same time, bitcoin support as of now is at the $11,276.03 level.

According to an intra-range strategy, a pullback from resistance could allow traders to open a short position towards the support. Similarly, a bounce back from the support level could prompt traders to open a Long position towards resistance.

Nevertheless, with bitcoin’s earlier breakout mood, trader can expect to extend their long and short targets. That said, a break above the resistance level could have traders extend or place a new Long towards $12,266.01. Similarly, a break below the support level would have them extend or open a short position towards $10,663.58.
