For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to break back through to $8,700 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,064.73 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $9,000 would likely pin Bitcoin back on the day.
In the event of rebound, the first major resistance level at $9,064.73 would likely limit any upside on the day.
Failure to break back through to $8,700 levels could see Bitcoin fall back into the red.
A fall through back through the morning low $8,526.4 would bring the first major support level at $8,122.73 into play.
In the event of another extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$8,000 levels.
