For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $16,315.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $16,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $16,629.
Failure to move back through the $16,029 pivot would bring the first major support level at $15,743 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$15,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $15,429.
