For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $7,100 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $7,134.13 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $7,090.
Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $7,160.5 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $7,222.47 would come into play.
Failure to move through to $7,100 levels could see Bitcoin fall back into the red.
A fall through to sub-$7,070 levels would bring the first major support level at $6,983.83 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer of sub-$6,900 levels.
The second major support level at $6,921.87 should limit any downside on the day.
