The leading digital currency Bitcoin is down by 1.55% on the day to trade at around $9,813 at press time. During the day, BTC has been trading in a narrow corridor between $9,788 and $10,097, which are the lowest and highest price points of the coin over the day.
As Cointelegraph reported in a dedicated analysis earlier today, if Bakkt momentum picks up, the Bitcoin price could see resistance around $10,630 on the day. On the other hand, support on the weekly Bollinger Bands sits around $7,700. If this level is broken, the price needs to hold $7,150 before the monthly moving average is breached.
