For the week ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $57,167 pivot to support a run the first major resistance level at $63,834.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $60,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and last week’s new swing hi $64,829.0 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $70,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $71,496.
Failure to move through the $57,167 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 and the first major support level at $49,505 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$45,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $42,838.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin was up by 1.01% to $56,738.0. A mixed start to the week saw Bitcoin fall to an early Monday morning low $55,709.0 before rising to a high $57,200.0.
