For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $9,700 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,784.0 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $9,620.4.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could eye the second major resistance level at $9,947.6 before any pullback.
Failure to move through to $9,700 levels could see Bitcoin struggle on the day.
A fall back through the morning low $9,552.6 would bring the first major support level at $9,538.6 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,456.8.
