For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $58,279 to bring the first major resistance level at $59,551 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $59,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $60,000 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at last Sunday’s new swing hi $61,699.0. The second major resistance level sits at $61,463.

Failure to move through the $58,279 pivot would bring the first major support level at $56,367 back into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$55,000 levels. The second major support level at $55,095 should limit the downside.
