For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $35,191 to bring the first major resistance level at $36,764 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $35,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $37,381.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $38,955.
Failure to move through the pivot at $35,191 would bring the first major support level at $33,000 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level at $31,427 should limit the downside.
