For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $10,239 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,551.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $10,593.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, the second major resistance level at $10,906 would likely come into play.
Failure to move through the $10,239 pivot would bring the first major support level at $9,884 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,571.
