Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break through Sunday’s high $60,722.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance $61,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the March swing hi $61,699 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $61,435.
Failure to move back through the $60,021 pivot would bring the first major support level at $59,319 into play.
