For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $6,800 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $6,985.3 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $6,815.0.
Barring another crypto rally, the first major resistance level at $6,985.30 would likely pin Bitcoin back on the day.
Failure to move back through to $6,800 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through to sub-$6,700 levels would bring the first major support level at $6,559.8 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer of the 23.6% FIB of $6,300.
The second major support level at $6,378.8 should limit any downside on the day.
