For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back through the $46,445 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $47,343 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $47,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $47,398.6 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rebound, Bitcoin could test resistance at $50,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $48,297.
Failure to move back through the $46,445 pivot would bring the first major support level at $45,491 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$44,000 levels. The second major support level at $44,592 should limit the downside.
