For the Bitcoin Day Ahead

Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 and the $50,276 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $52,993 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $52,000 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $52,131 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $55,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $54,487.

Failure to avoid a fall through the 23.6% FIB and the $50,276 pivot would bring the first major support level at $48,422 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$47,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $45,705.
