For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $6,900 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $6,986.77 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to breakout from Monday’s high $6,917.0.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high will likely pin Bitcoin back from $7,000.
In the event of an extended rally, the second major resistance level at $7,124.83 could come into play.
Failure to move back through to $6,900 levels could see Bitcoin spend another day in the red.
A fall back through to sub-$6,800 levels would bring the first major support level at $6,640.87 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should continue to steer of sub-$6,500 support levels.
In the event of a sell-off, the 23.6% FIB of $6,300 would likely come into play.
