The attached chart shows net moving profits or losses on Bitcoin on a daily basis. Moving profits and losses on a daily basis indicate if people are cashing out profits or panic selling to take a loss. Large red areas signify a large portion of on-chain movement being at a loss. Since we just exited the red area, a lot of people are in profit and these red areas act as places where momentum builds up for a price to appreciate.

Since September, the amount of Bitcoin sold seems to be at $11,780, which means it is a local top. Similarly, the local bottom seems to be at $10,500, a level where a large amount of accumulation has taken place.

Hence, judging by other metrics, it can be concluded that we can expect Bitcoin to easily move up to $11,780, a level where it will face resistance, and perhaps even sell-off.
