For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $61,129 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $62,492 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $62,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap the upside.
In the event of another breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $65,000 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $64,696.
Failure to move through the $61,129 would bring the first major support level at $58,925 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$57,000 levels, however. The second major support level at $57,562 should limit the downside.
