BTC/USD 07/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $10,661 to bring the first major resistance level at $10,773 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,700 levels.

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 resistance at $10,800 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $10,933.

Failure to move through the $10,661 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,501 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,400 support levels. The second major support level sits at $10,389.
