The Rest of the Pack
It’s been a mixed morning for the broader crypto market.
It’s been a bearish morning for the rest, however.
At the time of writing, Polkadot was down by 4.23% to lead the way down.

Bitcoin’s dominance fell to an early low 41.84% before rising to a high 42.55%. At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s dominance stood at 42.54%.
For the Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through to sub-$34,000 levels and the $32,843 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $34,611 back into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $34,534.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $35,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $36,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $35,820.
A fall back through to sub-$34,000 levels and the $32,843 pivot would bring the first major support level at $31,634 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off through the afternoon, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels.
The second major support level sits at $29,866.
Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, the 50 EMA narrowed marginally on the 100 EMA and the 200 EMA early on. Going into the 2nd half of the day, however, there was no sign of an imminent bullish cross, leaving downside risk in play.
