For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the $36,939 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $38,061 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $38,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $38,337.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $39,460.
Failure to move back through the $36,936 pivot would bring the first major support level at $35,540 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $34,418.
