For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $10,554 to bring the first major resistance level at $10,718 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $10,686.0.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $10,849 before any pullback.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $10,554 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,423 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,200 support levels. The second major support level at $10,259 should limit any downside.
