For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $34,915 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $35,944 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $35,886.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $36,000 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $37,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $36,473.

A fall through the $34,915 pivot would bring the first major support level at $34,386 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$33,000 levels. The second major support level at $33,357 should limit the downside.
