For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through to $6,050 levels to bring the first major resistance level at $6,150.93 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break out from the morning high $6,036.7.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside on the day.
Failure to move through to $6,050 levels could see Bitcoin hit reverse.
A fall back through the morning low $5,880.9 would bring the first major support level at $5,763.53 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer well clear of the second major support level at $5,634.37.
