Bitcoin would need to move through to $7,450 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $7,614.2.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break through to $7,400 levels.
Barring an extended rally throughout the day, resistance at $7,500 would likely cap any upside on the day.
Failure to move through to $7,450 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $7,315.5 would bring the first major support level at $7,181.5 into play.
Barring a broad-based sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $7,015.60.
