For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $58,297 to bring the first major resistance level at $59,193 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $59,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $59,500 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the March swing hi $61,699 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $60,395.
Failure to move through the $58,297 pivot would bring the first major support level at $57,095 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $56,199.
