For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $53,764 to bring the first major resistance level at $56,229 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $55,500.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $60,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,464.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $53,764 pivot would bring the first major support level at $52,529 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$50,000 levels. The second major support level at $50,064 should limit the downside.
