For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $30,067 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $30,821 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $30,500 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $31,079.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $32,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $31,833.
Failure to move through the $30,067 pivot would bring the first major support level at $29,055 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$28,000 levels. The second major support level at $28,301 should limit the downside.
