For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $8,860 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,004.23 into play.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $9,162.97 would likely come into play.
Failure to move back through to $8,860 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning $8,822.2 would bring the first major support level at $8,695.83 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $8,546.17.
