For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $9,150 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,475.7 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $9,060.2.
Barring an extended crypto rebound, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $9,500 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the second major resistance level at $9,894.3.
Failure to move back through to $9,150 levels could see Bitcoin spend a 3rd consecutive day in the red.
A fall back through Thursday’s low $8,815.3 would bring the first major support level at $8,726.9 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $8,396.7.
