For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $20,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $19,817.
A fall through the $19,259 pivot would bring the first major support level at $19,056 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $18,701.
