For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $59,652 to bring the first major resistance level at $61,403 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $61,243.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at the March swing hi $61,699 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $65,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $62,995.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $59,652 pivot would bring the first major support level at $58,060 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer well clear of the second major support level at $56,309.
