For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to steer clear of sub-$9,020 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,255.33 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Thursday’s high $9,186.5.
Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $9,200 would likely limit any upside on the day.
In the event of a breakout, expect the 38.2% FIB of $9,260 to come into play.
Failure to hold above $9,020 levels could see Bitcoin fall back into the red
A fall back through to sub-$9,000 levels would bring the first major support level at $8,857.43 into play.
Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the sub-$8,800 levels on the day.
