For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid the $49,825 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $51,318 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from 23.6% FIB of $50,473 once more.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $51,142 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $53,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $52,635.
A fall through the $49,825 pivot would bring the first major support level at $48,508 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 $47,015.
