For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $18,643 to bring the first major resistance level at $18,962 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $18,900 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $19,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $19,265.
Failure to move back through the $18,643 pivot would bring the first major support level at $18,340 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$18,000 levels. The second major support level at $18,021 should limit any downside.
