For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $59,159 to bring the first major resistance level at $60,000 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $59,500 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $60,190.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at 14th March swing hi $61,699.0 before easing back. The second major resistance level sits at $61,021.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $59,159 pivot would bring the first major support level at $58,128 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$58,000 support levels. The second major support level sits at $57,297.
