For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $56,104 to bring the first major resistance level at $57,158 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $57,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s new swing hi $57,485.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $60,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $58,539.
Failure to move through the $56,104 pivot would bring the first major support level at $54,723 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $53,669.
