For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $54,324 to bring the first major resistance level at $55,835 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $55,822.3.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $56,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $58,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,334.
Failure to move back through the $54,324 pivot would bring the first major support level at $52,825 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$50,000 levels. The second major support level at $51,313 should limit the downside.
