Bitcoin would need to move back through the morning high $8,940.0 to bring the first major resistance level at $9,111.27 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Monday’s high $8,990.8.
Barring a broad-based crypto recovery, resistance at $9,000 would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.
In the event of a crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $9,284.13 and 38.2% FIB of $9,260 could come into play.
Failure to move back through the morning high $8,940.0 see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red
A fall back through to sub-$8,820 levels would bring the first major support level at $8,645.07 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should well steer clear of sub-$8,500 support levels and the 23.6% FIB of $8,200.
