For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $6,900 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $7,202.8 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $7,000 levels.
Barring another crypto rally, resistance at $7,000 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.
Failure to move back through to $6,900 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $6,730.1 would bring the first major support level at $6,499.3 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer of the 23.6% FIB of $6,300.
