There’s a $15 Million Bitcoin Sell Wall Stopping $11,500 From Breaking
Bitcoin is pushing higher after correcting as low as $10,600 on Tuesday. As of the time of this article’s writing, the asset trades for $11,200 — a price point nearly 20% higher than that seen seven days ago and one 3% higher in the past 24 hours.
Analysts believe that this small rally is a precursor to a break of the ongoing consolidation to the upside.
Yet according to order book data shared by a trader, Bitcoin may have trouble resolving higher as it faces strong resistance.
Bitcoin Could Have Trouble Breaking Past $11,500
On Monday, Bitcoin’s rally topped out at $11,500. It isn’t clear why that is but that level has been a historically important technical level for the leading cryptocurrency.
As BTC has begun to inch higher over recent hours, traders are looking for Bitcoin to break past $11,500 to sustain the uptrend.
According to order book data shared by a trader, this may be a tall ask of buyers, though. According to a chart of BTC’s recent price action with the Order Book Dominance Bands indicator, there is approximately $15 million worth of sell orders from $11,300-11,500 preventing upside. This data pertains to Bitfinex.

There was no order book data from other crypto exchanges shared by the trader.
Bitcoin could rocket past these order book resistances if there is enough buying volume. But it’s important to note Bitfinex order book has had historical accuracy in calling BTC price action.
The same trader shared the chart seen below a bit earlier. It shows that the Bitfinex order book predicted many of Bitcoin’s swing moves over the past five months.
