For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $18,641 to bring the first major resistance level at $19,010 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $18,500 levels and back through to $19,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, resistance at $19,500 and the second major resistance level at $19,692 would likely come into play.
Failure to move through the $19,641 pivot would bring the first major support level at $17,959 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $17,590.
