For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $40,089 to bring the first major resistance level at $41,478 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $41,399.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, first major resistance level and resistance at $41,500 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $43,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $42,788.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $40,089 pivot would bring the first major support level at $38,779 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should continue to steer clear of sub-$38,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $37,390.
