For Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin should move back through the pivot level at $ 18,643 to bring the first major resistance level at $ 18,962 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break through the $ 18,900 levels.
Barring an extended cryptocurrency rally, the first major resistance level would likely limit any upside.
In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $ 19,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level is found at $ 19,265.
Failure to return to the pivot of $ 18,643 would bring the first major support level at $ 18,340 into play.
Barring another extended cryptocurrency sell-off, Bitcoin is expected to avoid levels below $ 18,000. The second major support level at $ 18,021 should limit any downside.
