For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $48,419 to bring the first major resistance level at $49,679 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $49,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $50,000 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $51,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $50,498.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $48,419 pivot would bring the first major support level at $47,600 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the 23.6% FIB of $45,50. The second major support level at $46,340 should limit the downside.
