For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

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 Tuesday’s high $37,888.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000. The second major resistance level sits at $38,969.
Failure to move back through the pivot at $36,740 would bring the first major support level at $35,592 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$35,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $34,511.
