For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $48,971 pivot to bring the 23.6% FIB of $50,473 and the first major resistance level at $50,829 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from $50,500 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $51,000 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 $52,530.
Failure to avoid a fall back through the $48,971 would bring the first major support level at $47,270 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$45,000 levels. The second major support level at $45,412 should limit the downside.
