For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from $10,800 levels.
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 $10,205 before any pullback.
Failure to move through the $10,790 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,404 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 $10,175.
