In the event of an extended rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $63,000 levels before easing back. The second major resistance level sits at $61,470.
A fall through the $59,034 pivot would bring the first major support level at $58,182 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$57,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $56,598.
