For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $10,260 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $10,456.0 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,400 levels.
Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level at $10,456.0 would likely leave Bitcoin short of $10,500 levels.
In the event of another breakout, Bitcoin would eye a breakout from the second major resistance level at $10,690.0.
Failure to move back through to $10,400 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through to sub-$10,100 levels would bring the first major support level at $10,023.0 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the sub-$10,000 levels on the day.
