For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move the $47,652 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $52,085 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from the 23.6% FIB of $50,473.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the 23.6% FIB would likely leave Bitcoin short of the first major resistance level.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rebound, Bitcoin could test resistance at $55,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $57,320.
Failure to move through the $47,652 pivot would bring the first major support level at $42,417 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of the 38.2% FIB of $41,592. The second major support level sits at $37,984.
