For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $13,062 to bring the first major resistance level at $13,243 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from Saturday’s high $13,178.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another crypto breakout, Bitcoin could test resistance at $13,500 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $13,358.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $13,062 pivot would bring the first major support level at $12,947 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer well clear of sub-$12,800 levels. The second major support level sits at $12,766.
