For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $57,993 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $59,590.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Sunday’s high $59,236.5.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $60,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the swing hi $64,829 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $60,904, with the third major resistance level sitting at $63,886.
Failure to avoid a fall through the pivot at $57,993 would bring the first major support level at $56,609 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$55,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $54,941.
