For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
For the day ahead, Bitcoin would need to move through to $8,300 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $8,424.60.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break through to $8,400 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely pin Bitcoin back from a run at $8,500 levels.
Failure to move through to $8,300 levels could see Bitcoin slide deeper into the red.
A fall back through to sub-$8,170 levels would bring the first major support level at $8,009.2 into play.
In the event of an extended sell-off through the day, Bitcoin would likely visit sub-$8,000 levels before any recovery.
