BTC/USD 02/06/20 Daily Chart

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid sub-$10,015 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $10,608.73 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Monday’s high $10,398.0.

Barring another broad-based crypto rally, resistance at $10,400 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could eye $10,700 levels before any pullback.

Failure to avoid sub-$10,015 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.

A fall back through the morning low to sub-$10,015 levels would bring the first major support level at $9,632.53 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$9,800 levels on the day.
