The Crypto Daily – Movers and Shakers – October 4th, 2020It’s a mixed start to the day for the crypto majors. A Bitcoin move through to $10,600 levels should support the pack.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. The vast majority of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.
It was a relatively range-bound day on Saturday. Bitcoin fell to a mid-morning intraday low $10,513.0 before finding support.
Steering clear of the first major support level at $10,423, Bitcoin rose to a late afternoon intraday high $10,616.0.
Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $10,718, Bitcoin fell back to sub-$10,600 levels and into the red.
The near-term bullish trend remained intact, in spite of the latest pullback. For the bears, Bitcoin would need to slide through the 62% FIB of $6,400 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $10,563 to bring the first major resistance level at $10,612 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,600 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $10,666 and resistance at $10,700 before any pullback.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $10,563 pivot would bring the first major support level at $10,509 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,400 support levels. The second major support level at $10,460 should limit any downside.
