There are quite a number of technical levels above the current price, which means that Bitcoin is vulnerable to new losses. The downside looks like a path of least resistance at this stage; however, lack of follow-through on the way down may discourage bears.

Resistance levels

$10,200 - SMA10 (Simple Moving Average) four-hour, SMA100 four-hour, the middle line of daily Bollinger Band.
$10,500 - SMA50 daily, SMA200 four-hour, 38.2% Fibo retracement weekly;
$10,600 - 161.8% Fibo projection, 23.6% Fibo retracement weekly.

Support levels
$10,000 -23.6% Fibo retracement daily and monthly, a host of short-term SMA levels;
$9,500 - Pivot Point one-week Support 1;
$9,300 - the lowest level of the previous month.
