The near-term bullish trend remained intact, supported the latest return to $66,000 levels. For the bears, Bitcoin would need a sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $27,237 to form a near-term bearish trend.

For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid the $60,940 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $62,126 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $61,740.0.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap the upside.
In the event of another breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $63,500 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $62,949.
A fall through the $60,940 would bring the first major support level at $60,117 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$59,000 levels, however. The second major support level sits at $58,931.
