For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $47,812 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $48,187 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $48,000 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $48,350.0 would likely cap the upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 before any pullback. Bitcoin would need plenty of support, however, to break through the third major resistance level at $49,686. The second major resistance level sits at $48,724.

Failure to move through the $47,812 would bring the first major support level at $47,275 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$47,000. The second major support level sits at $46,900.
