For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $8,100 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $8,200.13 and 23.6% FIB of $8,200.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $8,072.4.
Barring a broad-based extended crypto rally on the day, the first major resistance level and 23.6% FIB would likely cap any upside.
Failure to move through to $8,100 levels could see Bitcoin fall back into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $7,951.7 would bring the first major support level at $7,909.53 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$7,900 levels and the second major support level at $7,805.37.
