For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $9,137 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,214.47.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,200 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rebound, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $9,204.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin should break through the second major resistance level at $9,281.23 before any pullback.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $9,137 pivot level could see Bitcoin struggle on the day.
A fall back through to sub-$9,100 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,070.47 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$9,000 and the 23.6% FIB of $8,900. The second major support level sits at $8,993.23.
