For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the pivot level at $47,214 to bring the first major resistance level at $48,172 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $48,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $48,209.0 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 $49,168.
Failure to move back through the $47,214 pivot would bring the first major support level at $46,218 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Bitcoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $45,260.
