For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid the $48,870 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $49,354 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $49,300 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $49,311 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $50,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $49,794.

A fall through the $48,870 pivot would bring the first major support level at $48,430 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$47,500 levels. The second major support level at $47,946 should limit the downside.
