The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – September 14th, 2020It’s a choppy start to the day for the majors. A Bitcoin move through to $10,400 levels should support the broader market.
Bitcoin, BTC to USD, fell by 1.22% on Sunday. Reversing a 0.51% gain from Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week up by 0.54% to $10,331.0.
It was a bullish start to the day. Bitcoin rose to an early morning intraday high $10,623.0 before hitting reverse.
Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $10,538 and the second major resistance level at $10,617.
The reversal saw Bitcoin slide to a late afternoon intraday low $10,231.0.
Bitcoin fell the first major support level at $10,333 before finding late support.
A move back through to $10,330 levels limited the downside on the day. The first major support level at $10,333 pinned Bitcoin back in the final hour, however.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest pullback to sub-$10,000. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

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.
