For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $10,165 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $10,447.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $10,400 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $10,464.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $10,700 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $10,746.
Failure to move through the $10,165 pivot would bring the first major support level at $9,866 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $9,583.
