For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to move back through the $49,948 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $50,495 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $50,544.0 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 $51,091.

Failure to move back through the $49,948 pivot would bring the first major support level at $49,352 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$48,000 levels. The second major support level at $48,805 should limit the downside.
