For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $18,256 to bring the first major resistance level at $18,868 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $18,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $19,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $19,343.
Failure to move back through the $18,256 pivot would bring the first major support level at $17,781 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$17,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $17,169.
