For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $31,509 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $33,495 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $32,850.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $34,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $34,836.

A fall through the $31,509 pivot would bring the first major support level at $30,168 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$30,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $28,182.
