For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $9,800 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,909.47 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Sunday’s high $9,814.0.
Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $10,071.83 before any pullback. Expect plenty of resistance at $9,900, however…
Failure to move through to $9,800 levels could see Bitcoin struggle on the day.
A fall back through the morning low $9,745.0 to sub-$9,650 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,489.27 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,231.43.
