In the event of a prolonged rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $ 65,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level is located at $ 63,312.
Failure to cross the pivot of $ 61,447 would bring into play the first major support level at $ 60,293.
Unless there is an extended sale on that day, Bitcoin should avoid levels below $ 60,000, however. The second major support level is at $ 59,582.
