For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to break back through the second major resistance level at $9,161.07 to bring $9,400 levels back into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $9,198.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level and resistance at $9,200 would likely pin Bitcoin back on the day.
In the event of another breakout, the third major resistance level at $9,409.77 would come into play.
Failure to break back through the second major resistance level could see Bitcoin struggle later in the day.
A fall back through to sub-$8,920 levels would bring the first major support level at $8,824.33 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should clear of sub-$9,000 levels on the day.
