For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $9,274 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,328.0.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,300 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high $9,350.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin should break through the second major resistance level at $9,404.0 before any pullback.
Failure to move through the $9,274 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $9,198.0 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should avoid sub-$9,100 levels. The second major resistance level at $9,144.0 should limit any downside.
