It was a bearish start for the rest, however, with Stellar’s Lumen falling by 1.43% to lead the way down.
For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid sub-$9,600 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,863.17 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $9,750.0.
Barring another broad-based crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $10,019.93 and 62% FIB of $10,034 could come into play.
Failure to avoid sub-$9,600 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $9,654.2 to sub-$9,600 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,436.47 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$9,400 levels on the day.
