For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $9,558 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,646.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,600 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday high $9,644 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $9,732 before any pullback.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $9,558 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $9,471 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major resistance level at $9,383.
