For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid sub-$9,450 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,773.67 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Thursday’s high $9,630.3.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $9,958.03 and the 62% FIB of $10,034 would likely come into play.
Failure to avoid sub-$9,450 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning low to sub-$9,450 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,261.57 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer well clear of the second major support level at $8,933.83.
