For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $19,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $19,498 would likely come into play.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $18,604 pivot would bring the first major support level at $18,264 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$18,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $17,710.
