For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $58,245 to bring the first major resistance level at $58,777 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $58,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $59,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $60,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $59,420.
Failure to move back through the $58,245 pivot would bring the first major support level at $57,602 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$57,000 levels. The second major support level at $57,070 should limit the downside.
