For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $35,885 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $37,140 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $37,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $37,461.3 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 $38,716.
Failure to move through the $35,885 pivot would bring the first major support level at $34,309 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$33,000 levels. The second major support level at $33,054 should limit the downside.
