For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $10,574 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,889.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Monday’s high $10,773.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $11,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $11,088 to eye $11,500 levels before any pullback.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $10,574 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,375 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $10,060 and sub-$10,000.
