For the day ahead, Bitcoin would need to steer clear of sub-$8,340 levels to support a rebound.
A move back through to $8,400 levels would bring the first major resistance level at $8,456.37 into play.
Bitcoin would need the support of the broader market, however, to break through the first major resistance level.
Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, the morning high and first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
Failure to steer clear of sub-$8,340 levels could see Bitcoin test the first major support level at $8,255.47.
Barring an extended sell-off through the day, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$8,100 levels.
