It was a particularly bullish week last week, with Bitcoin returning to $10,000 levels. A move through to $10,200 would signal more upside ahead.

Bitcoin rallied by 2.77% on Sunday. Following on from a 0.73% gain on Saturday, Bitcoin ended the week up by 8.53% to $10,151.0.

A bullish start to the day saw Bitcoin rally from an early morning intraday low $9,871.1 to a mid-morning intraday high $10,165.0.

Bitcoin broke through the first major resistance level at $9,979.4 and the second major resistance level at $10,081.6.

A mid-afternoon pullback saw Bitcoin fall back through the major resistance levels before bouncing back.

The late bounce back saw Bitcoin break back through the first and second major resistance levels to wrap up the day at $10,100 levels.

Bitcoin steered well clear of the major support levels throughout the day.

The near-term bearish trend, formed at late June’s swing hi $13,764.0, remained firmly intact, however, in spite of the upward momentum.

For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break out from $11,000 levels to form a near-term bullish trend.

Tezos and Binance Coin led the way with rallies of 15.04% and 11.87% respectively.

BTC/USD 10/02/20 Daily Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through the morning high $10,187.0 to bring the first major resistance level at $10,253.63 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break through to $10,200 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally day, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside on the day.

In the event of another breakout, the second major resistance level at $10,356.27 and $10,500 levels could come into play.

Failure to move back through the morning high $10,287.0 could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.

A fall back through the morning low $10,129.0 to sub-$10,062 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,959.73 into play.

Barring a crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the sub-$9,900 on the day.
