For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to steer clear of sub-$7,100 levels support a run at the first major resistance level at $7,713.27.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from $7,400 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, resistance at $7,500 would likely pin Bitcoin back for a 2nd consecutive day.

Failure to steer clear of sub-$7,100 levels could see Bitcoin eat into Wednesday’s gain.

A fall through to sub-$7,090 levels would bring the first major support level at $6,708.07 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off through the day, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$6,700 levels.
