For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid sub-$9,700 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,945.67 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $9,878.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, the 62% FIB of $10,034 and the second major resistance level at $10,121.93 would likely come into play.
Failure to avoid sub-$9,700 levels could see Bitcoin fall deep into the red.
A fall back through to sub-$9,700 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,525.47 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,281.53.
