Bitcoin Cash ABC (-0.03%), Bitcoin Cash SV (-0.11%), Monero’s XRM (-0.12%), Stellar’s Lumen (-0.26%), Tezos (-0.36%), and Tron’s TRX (-0.10%) were also in the red at the time of writing.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid sub-$9,740 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,905.97 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $9,876.0.
Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high would likely limit any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $10,040.03 before any pullback.
Failure to avoid sub-$9,740 levels could see Bitcoin struggle on the day.
A fall back through the morning low $9,759.5 to sub-$9,740 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,607.87 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$9,500 support levels.
