For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through to $9,200 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,295.47 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $9,206.3.

Barring an extended crypto rebound, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $9,304.0 would likely limit any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $9,415.33 would likely come into play.

Failure to move through to $9,200 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.

A fall back through the morning low $9,131.3 would bring the first major support level at $9,064.27 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $8,952.93.
