For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $32,168 to bring the 23.6% FIB of $33,008 and the first major resistance level at $33,326 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $33,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $33,500 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $35,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $34,331.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $32,168 pivot would bring the first major support level at $31,163 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $30,005.
