For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $32,364 to bring the 23.6% FIB of $33,008 and the first major resistance level at $33,289 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $33,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the 23.6% FIB and the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $35,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $34,479.

Failure to move through the $32,364 pivot would bring the first major support level at $31,174 into play.

Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level at $30,250 should limit the downside.
