For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $55,069 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $56,222 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $56,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $56,432.0 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $58,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,584.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $55,069 would bring the first major support level at $53,707 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer well clear of the 23.6% FIB of $50,473. The second major support level at $52,554 should limit the downside.
