For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the $9,215 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,322.13.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $9,298.0.
Barring an extended crypto rebound, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test the second major resistance level at $9,404.37 before any pullback.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $9,215 pivot level could see Bitcoin struggle on the day.
A fall back through to sub-$9,200 would bring the first major support level at $9,133.53 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should avoid the 23.6% FIB of $8,900. The second major support level at $9,027.17 should limit any downside on the day.
