For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the morning high $6,888.0 to bring the first major resistance level at $6,902.00 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $6,900 levels
Barring another crypto rally, the first major resistance level at $6,902 and Sunday’s high $6,917.9 would likely pin Bitcoin back on the day.
Failure to move back through the morning high could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall back through to sub-$6,800 levels would bring the first major support level at $6,674.30 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer of the second major support level at $6,568.40.
