For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $10,395 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,559.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $10,500 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $10,700 before any pullback. Bitcoin would likely fall short of the second major resistance level at $10,787, however.
Failure to move through the $10,395 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,167 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,000. The second major support level at $10,003 should limit any downside.
