For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the first major resistance level at $6,856.47 to bring $7,000 levels into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the second major resistance level at $6,961.03.
Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $6,900 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the second major resistance level.
Failure to break back through the first major resistance level could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall back through the morning low to sub-$6,690 levels would bring the first major support level at $6,581.67 into play.
Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should continue to steer well clear of the 23.6% FIB of $6,300.
The second major support level at $6,411.43 should limit any downside on the day.
