For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move through the $47,611 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $48,319 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break back through to $48,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high $48,924.7 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 $49,633.
Failure to move through the $47,611 pivot would bring the first major support level at $46,297 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 $45,589 should limit the downside.
