For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the morning high $10,385 to $10,400 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $10,543.33 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from $10,400 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Bitcoin would likely fall short of $10,600 levels for a 4th consecutive day. The first major resistance level at $10,543.33 and Monday’s high $10,557 would limit any upside.
Failure to move through to $10,400 levels could see Bitcoin see red for a 3rd consecutive day.
A fall through the morning low $10,313.5 to sub-$10,300 levels would bring the first major support level at $10,104.33 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$10,100 levels on the day.
For the bulls, Bitcoin would need to break down resistance at $10,600 to bring $11,000 levels back into play.
