For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $13,454 to bring the first major resistance level at $13,787 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $13,700 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 $14,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $14,007.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $13,454 pivot would bring the first major support level at $13,234 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$13,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $12,901.
