For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $36,563 to bring the first major resistance level at $37,263 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $37,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $37,936.6 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $38,637.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $36,563 pivot would bring the first major support level at $35,190 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$35,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $34,490.
