For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through to $6,700 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $6,960.73.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $6,790.8.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $6,800 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.
Failure to move back through to $6,700 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall back through the morning low $6,668.4 would bring the first major support level at $6,422.93 into play.
Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should continue to steer clear of the 23.6% FIB of $6,300.
