For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to steer clear of sub-$9,340 levels to support another run at the first major resistance level at $9,423.90.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,400 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally later in the day, Bitcoin will likely fall short of $9,500 levels for a 5th consecutive day.
Failure to steer clear of sub-$9,340 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall back through to sub-$9,300 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,245.90 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,159.70.
