For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the 38.2% FIB of $41,592 and the $40,952 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $43,562 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $42,500 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $45,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $44,908.

A fall through the 38.2% FIB and the $40,952 pivot would bring the first major support level at $39,605 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$38,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $36,966.
