For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the pivot level at $55,636 to bring the first major resistance level at $57,935 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Tuesday’s high $57,099.0.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $58,000.0 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 $59,398.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $55,636 pivot would bring the first major support level at $54,173 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$53,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $51,874.
