For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $34,402 to bring the first major resistance level at $36,631 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $35,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $36,656.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $40,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $38,631.
Failure to move through the $34,402 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB of $33,008 and the first major support level at $32,148 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level at $30,173 should limit the downside.
