For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through $9,520 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,637.1 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from $9,500 levels.
Barring another broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $9,823.1 could come into play.
Failure to move through to $9,520 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall back through the morning low $9,421.8 would bring the first major support level at $9,335.2 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$9,300 levels on the day.
