For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the pivot level at $46,582 to bring the first major resistance level at $48,063 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $48,000 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Saturday’s high $48,407 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $50,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $49,889.
Failure to move through the $46,582 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB of $45,501 and the first major support level at $44,756 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$43,000 levels. The second major support level at $43,275 should limit the downside.
