For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $28,594 to bring the first major resistance level at $29,639 back into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $29,488.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $30,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $30,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $30,322.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $28,594 pivot would bring the first major support level at $27,902 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$27,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $26,865.
