For the Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $38,227 pivot to support another run at the 38.2% FIB of $41,592.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from this morning’s high $40,884.0.

Barring an extended rally through the early afternoon, resistance at $41,000 would likely continue to limit the upside.

A move back through the $40,500 levels, however, would bring the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the second major resistance level at $41,602 back into play.

Looking beyond the support and resistance levels, we saw the 50 EMA break back through the 100 EMA delivering the markets with a bullish signal this morning…

A fall back through the $38,227 pivot would bring the first major support level at $36,625 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off throughout the afternoon, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$35,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $34,853.
