Bitcoin would need to move through to $8,900 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $9,037.13 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Monday’s high $8,963.7.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $9,172.27 would likely come into play.
Failure to move back through to $8,900 levels could see Bitcoin fall deeper into the red.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $8,484.87.
