For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $22,891 to bring the first major resistance level at $23,898 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $23,500 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $24,000 would likely cap any upside.
