For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $47,791 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $48,521 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $48,500 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $49,000 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. The second major resistance level sits at $49,260.

A fall back through the $47,791 pivot would bring the first major support level at $47,052 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$46,000 levels. The second major support level at $46,322 should limit the downside.
