For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $38,502 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $40,587 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $40,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $41,673.

A fall through the $38,502 pivot would bring the first major support level at $37,416 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $35,331.
