For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $60,752 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $62,878 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to move back through to $62,000 levels
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $63,562 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of an extended rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $65,000 levels before easing back. The second major resistance level sits at $65,688.
Failure to move through the $60,752 pivot would bring the first major support level at $57,942 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$57,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $55,816.
