For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the 23.6% FIB of $33,008 and the pivot level at $33,258 to bring the first major resistance level at $34,287 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $34,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Sunday’s high $34,407.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $36,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $35,437.
Failure to move through the 23.6% FIB and the $33,258 pivot would bring the first major support level at $32,108 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$31,000 levels. The second major support level at $31,079 should limit the downside.
