For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $31,966 to bring the 23.6% FIB of $33,008 and the first major resistance level at $34,942 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $33,850.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, first major resistance level and resistance at $35,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $37,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $36,827.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $31,966 pivot would bring the first major support level at $30,081 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$28,000 levels and the 38.2% FIB of $27,465. The second major support level sits at $27,105.
