For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move through the $49,423 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $50,216 and the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Thursday’s high $50,365.0.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the 23.6% FIB would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $52,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $51,157.

Failure to move through the $49,423 pivot would bring the first major support level at $48,482 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$48,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $47,689.
