BTC/USD 04/05/20 Daily Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through to $8,950 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,151.53 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, resistance at $9,000 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.

In the event of another breakout, the first major resistance level and Sunday’s high $9,198 would likely cap any upside.

Failure to move through to $8,950 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.

A fall back through the first major support level would bring $8,500 levels into play before any recovery.

Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should clear of the second major support level at $8,485.27.
