For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $57,740 to bring the first major resistance level at $58,980 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 14th March swing hi $61,699.0 before easing back. The second major resistance level sits at $59,720.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $57,740 pivot would bring the first major support level at $57,000 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$55,000 support levels. The second major support level at $55,760 should limit the downside.
