For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $14,999 to bring the first major resistance level at $15,586 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $15,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, however, Bitcoin would likely fall well short of $15,500 levels and the first major resistance level.
In the event of a crypto breakout, Bitcoin could revisit Saturday’s high $15,740.0. The second major resistance level sits at $16,328.
Failure to move through the $14,999 pivot would bring the first major support level at $14,257 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$14,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $13,670.
